Active Schools relies heavily on volunteers to assist with and run various clubs around Angus. You don’t have to be sporty to lend a hand – just enthusiastic! We are looking for people to help out with a range of activities. From woodland walks to after-school sports clubs – there is something for volunteers of all ages and abilities. The time commitment is up to you and training will be provided.
Volunteering is an ideal way to get involved in sport and physical activity, develop new skills and stay engaged in a sport. Volunteering can be a rewarding activity which helps you to meet new people and take on new challenges through roles such as coaching or administration. There are many reasons to volunteer in sport – volunteers make sport happen and create the next generation of sporting stars. You could be giving back but you’ll also be helping make sport happen, without people like you, sport would not work!

We work in partnership with Angus Health & Social Care Partnership and Angus Alive in all the Angus burghs (except Monifieth) to provide exercise classes at different levels for people with a long-term condition, their partners and carers. These classes take place in Leisure Centres. We also recruit and train volunteers to provide seated exercise classes in Care Homes, Sheltered Housing and to other groups when requested. We take referrals to provide one-to-one exercises for people who are housebound. Further information can be found on the website at www.angusactivityprogramme.wordpress.com
