Volunteer Stories

Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football.

Without the time, dedication and commitment from the estimated 400,000 volunteers in England, the 37,000 clubs would simply not exist. A football club is about more than just the players on the pitch.

The Kent FA recognises the value of volunteers in running and developing football at every level.

Charlotte Richardson, grassroots volunteer

I think the only advice I would give to people thinking about volunteering, is go for it. Even if you feel a bit nervous or scared – l know I did on several occasions – fake it, until you make it! I’m a huge advocate of making the most of your spare time and volunteering serves that principle perfectly. It’s not something you even have to do alone, get some of your friends involved too and you can have a really good time.
