Become a YuGo sport and exercise volunteer

Do you like getting out in the fresh air?

Could you use your skills to support adults with additional needs to access sport and exercise?

Are you enthusiastic about working to create a more inclusive community in Gloucestershire?

Then the role of YuGo Sport and Exercise Volunteer could be for you!

Why do we need you?

YuGo Exercise Engagement Pioneers are a company that aspires to create sustainable opportunities for adults with additional needs to enjoy accessible sport and exercise. We view physical exercise as a platform to promote positive physical, social and emotional health, and our members are always at the core of what we do.

All of the profit we generate through our activities is reinvested into our parent charity, Allsorts Gloucestershire, who provide a wide variety of activities for disabled children and their families living in Gloucestershire.

You’ll be helping us to provide opportunities for more adults with additional needs

We’re growing all the time, with new members joining YuGo and taking part in all of the fun! Your role as a volunteer will help us to provide opportunities for more adults with additional needs to access sport and exercise.

How much time should you offer?
When would you be needed?
Where will you be based?

We ask our volunteers to be available for one of our sports and exercise clubs each week – but if you can spare more time, we would love to have your support! Our clubs run a minimum of 44 weeks of the year, in locations across Gloucestershire.

We know you will miss the occasional week and that’s no problem. However, lots of members rely upon the consistency of the people supporting them, so we are looking for volunteers who can commit to clubs on a regular basis.

Our HQ is based in Stroud Town Centre, at the Allsorts Activity Hub. If we need to get together for a coffee or access training, it’s likely that we’ll do this from the Activity Hub. However, almost all of the clubs are off-site across the Stroud District and progressively across other locations in Gloucestershire.
