Week of Football: Volunteers

Today’s focus in the SFA’s Week of Football is the role of the “Volunteer”, which gives both the Football Club Board and the Community Foundation Trustees the opportunity to offer their sincere thanks to all the volunteers who contributed, in various ways, to the running of the Club and Community Foundation during the past season. Many of those people are listed below and the efforts of everyone associated with The Bully Wee continues to be vital to its operations.

Community football clubs and their charities are an important part of many people’s lives. They provide opportunities for physical activity, social interaction, and personal development.

However, running a community football club/charity is not easy. It requires a lot of time, effort, and resources. That’s why volunteers are essential for the success of any community football club/charity.

Volunteers are people who give their time and skills for free to help a cause they care about. They can have different roles and responsibilities in a community football club/charity, such as coaching, refereeing, ball boy/girl, fundraising, organising events, or the task of co-ordinating all the various social media platforms.

Volunteers can also benefit from their involvement in a community football club. They can learn new skills, make new friends and improve their confidence. However, volunteering in a community football club also comes with some challenges. Volunteers must balance their volunteering commitments with their personal and professional lives.

Therefore, it is important for community football clubs/charity to create a positive and supportive environment for their volunteers. To achieve this end, both our organisations must strive to provide adequate training, feedback, and clear communication, involve where possible in the decision-making process, but most important of all, to create a culture of appreciation that values and respects our volunteers at all levels.
