Application form

Thank you for the interest you have shown in this opportunity to volunteer with the Active Slough team at Slough Borough Council.

The Active Slough team aim to be the inspiration behind a healthier lifestyle for the local community through supporting local sports clubs, organisations and groups in delivering local sport and physical activities for all ages across the town. Our aim is to aid the development and enhancement of new and fun play, sport and physical activity opportunities all over Slough.

Active Slough run an expansive community sport and physical activity programme, containing more than 100 hours of weekly activity, targeting Tots/Juniors, Teens, Adults and Seniors.

Almost everyone knows sport and physical activity is good for them, and most would like to do more. We need to make that an easy, practical, attractive choice, especially for people who tend not to take part in sport or activity now: women and girls, disabled people, those in lower socio-economic groups and older people.

Are you passionate about using sport and physical activity to improve your community? Please apply by completing a volunteer application form and send it by email to activeslough@slough.gov.uk and we’ll get back in touch with you quickly.
