Tameside VIP

Tameside VIP is the home of sports volunteering in Tameside. The programme, in partnership with Greater Sport, makes volunteering easy and accessible.

Do you have a keen interest in sport and want to get involved? Register to find out what’s on offer – create your own profile and access opportunities with Active Tameside and other local partner clubs and community groups.

Many of our volunteers have gone on to gain coaching qualifications and employment opportunities. Gain rewards, such as an All-Inclusive gym membership, upon completion of the required hours.

Do I need to have experience in my area of interest?

Volunteering is for everyone and no previous experience or specific skills are required. However, if you do have any qualifications or experience you think could beneficial, let us know.

How often do I have to volunteer?

How often you volunteer is up to you, so you can fit your hours around your lifestyle and commitments. We like to reward our volunteers for their time to say thank you and make sure your experience is an enjoyable one. You can trade your hours for a variety of rewards, including Active Tameside All-Inclusive membership, which gives you access to all of our centres including gym, swim and classes. Volunteering for 40 hours gives you one month membership.

Once you have signed up to Tameside VIP and started volunteering, you can view rewards through the ‘hour trade vouchers’ option in your profile.
