Skills-based volunteering for companies

Most companies offer volunteering days to their employees, but few arm them with the skills needed to maximise these.

At Sported, we understand how beneficial (and hard to access) professional skills can be to our groups, but how little regarded they can be by those who have them. We want to give employees the confidence to really make a difference to their communities through a corporate package which enables companies to:


give employees the confidence and additional techniques needed to share existing skills.


find organisations in need of these skills based on location, interest or sport.


shout about the great corporate volunteering being done and identify those who have made the greatest impact.

Our Corporate Volunteering Programme aims to make the lives of HR Directors easier by providing an off the shelf package promoting skills-based volunteering. And we can adapt this for different sized organisations or those wanting to engage in different ways.

“If you can genuinely commit to volunteering as part of your social responsibility, then why not.”

Colin Jackson CBE

Multiple Gold Medallist and World Record Holder

“Charities such as Sported are critical to the sustainment of the love of sport in general, and they need support from professional volunteers to keep on enabling communities.”
