Volunteers are the backbone of Grassroots Football! 

Without the time, dedication and commitment volunteers demonstrate each and every week across our county, clubs and leagues would simply not exist.

A Football Club or League is about more than just the players on the pitch. Volunteers make football happen and help to create the next generation of sporting stars.

It’s usually the case that a few people at a club do a lot of the work. If you’re in this position it can often feel overwhelming. There are a variety of reasons to volunteer and recruiting new volunteers with the right skills to help out can be a significant help. Learn how you can get involved, below. 


Get into Volunteering

Grassroots football wouldn’t exist without volunteers. From secretaries and coaches, to line markers and tea makers, local clubs need volunteers to keep running.

Safeguarding and Welfare


Whatever your involvement in football, you have a responsibility to make our game as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone.

This is particularly true if your role as a volunteer involves working or being with children and young people under the age of 18.
