A new online resource from Join In will provide advice to grassroots sports clubs across the UK

Community sports clubs are to get help to manage volunteers, generate publicity and raise funds all for free thanks to a new online resource.

Join In, the UK support body for sports volunteering, has created Club Hub, an online resource to help grassroots sports clubs.

The site offers guides, advice, hints and tips created by successful clubs for other clubs.

Join In chief executive Rebecca Birkbeck said: “We work with thousands of grassroots sports groups every day, but it’s the volunteers within the clubs who are donating their time and building the clubs from within.

“We wanted to showcase these remarkable volunteers and use their success stories to inspire others looking for first hand advice or ideas.”

The site includes information on how to recruit volunteers for events, keep volunteers coming back for more and shares stories of how volunteers go above and beyond their roles to help build communities.

Join In has also pulled together media training tips for volunteers and clubs and has advice on how to use social media to your advantage.

Corporate partners BT also give advice on how to build and improve websites using its free web tool, the BT Community Web Kit.

The Club Hub also has practical guides to help with grant requests and real-life examples of how clubs have gained funding.
