Renfrewshire Leisure Sports Services are part of the Give to Get volunteering scheme.  Volunteer to help and support other young people in Renfrewshire. Read on to find out more.

Renfrewshire Leisure Sports Services encourage young people to get into a wide variety of sports and physical activities.  Anything from dance, football and athletics to badminton, cricket and rugby.  You name it!


In the past year we have supported young people to who gave their valuable free time to become qualified sports and activity leaders. These young people have provided over 10,000 volunteer hours to their community in various roles. Here are just some of the things we do that you could be involved with:

  • Renfrewshire School of Sport Education
  • Young Ambassadors
  • Sports Leaders
  • Young Leaders
  • Volunteering at extracurricular sports and activity clubs in Primary Schools
  • Volunteering in extracurricular sport and activity clubs in Secondary Schools
  • Producing sporting event media coverage e.g Newsletters, photography and promotional videos
  • Sporting Event volunteering  e.g team managers, referees, officials and stewards
  • Community Sports HUB club volunteering


As well as all of these things you can also volunteer to be involved with local festivals, tournaments and play clubs.  If you are interested in sports, health or physical activity in any way we will have a suitable volunteering opportunity for you. 


As part of the Give to Get scheme volunteering with us means you can get Reward points on your Young Scot National Entitlement Card (NEC) as well as using your hours to go towards a nationally recognised award like the Saltire or Sports Leader Award.

We offer all volunteers access to the training they need and plenty of support along the way. Volunteering opportunities may be subject to relevant PVG certificate and qualifications being checked
