Youth Sport Trust & Access Sport have formed a volunteering and leadership project for young people that will give them the opportunity to volunteer on a range of local to major sporting events.
The Ignite Programme is an innovative project aimed at engaging more young disabled people into sport. It is part of Access Sport’s wider legacy programme aiming to ensure that there is a lasting positive effect from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The Ignite multi sports inclusive camp is an inclusive opportunity for young disabled and non-disabled people (6-19) to participate in a range of sports such as athletics, basketball, squash, tag rugby, cricket, netball and football.
The aim of this camp is to ensure that young disabled people have access to sport so that they can realise the benefits that participation brings at an early age, and hope that this participation becomes a habit that is continued in later life.
Access Sport is looking for a group of enthusiastic and motivated young people who are passionate about the provision of disability sport and physical activity in Manchester. The key role throughout the camp will be to support, encourage and help maintain a fun and relaxed vibe. No previous experience and training is required for this opportunity. A full briefing on the day will be given to all volunteers.

We need volunteers to help out on an FA consultation exercise that is happening before and during the concert.
Manchester is developing proposals to secure £1.6m from Sport England to increase participation in football and become the "City of Football". Manchester has been short-listed along with Portsmouth and Nottingham and the three cities are developing final bids to secure the money. We are seeking to obtain the views of people as to how to increase participation in football, why people do not play the game and what would encourage them to participate .For those that do play the game we are seeking views to understand what would get them playing more regularly.
A full questionnaire is being developed to be used on the night. You will be required to assist in helping people fill out a questionnaire and collecting them back.
The whole process is going to be filmed and all volunteers will receive a t-shirt.
Volunteers will be required from 6.30pm until 9.30pm and asked to meet at the main entrance outside McDonalds through the Victoria Station, Trinity Way entrance.
Come on, come down and get involved on what will be an exciting night.
