Across the UK over a million people volunteer in sport, health and physical activity each year. They fill roles like coaching, club management, events volunteering, grounds maintenance, scorekeepers, administrators and a variety of other roles. Without volunteers many organisations would cease to function.
Sport at VAL has for the last 5 years been supporting these organisations to recruit, manage and support these volunteers. This work has been supported by the County Sport Partnership – Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport and Leicester City Council.
Most recently this work has been exemplified by the successful hosting of Rugby World Cup matches in Leicester City, a success driven by the involvement and hard work of volunteers recruited and trained by VAL.
We are now looking to expand our work in sport to ensure voluntary and community organisations offering provision are able to operate safely and effectively, attract resources and achieve sustainability.
We are seeking a consultant to lead on this work and are looking for quotation as an expression of interest. The attached document goes into further detail, however we hope to receive quotations no later than 21 January 2015.
