Volunteer with SUCET

6 July 2020

Southend United Community & Educational Trust has a variety of volunteering opportunities available, beginning in September 2020.

As the Club’s official charity, the Trust utilises the power of sport and vehicle of Southend United to have a positive influence on people’s lives across South East Essex.

Opportunities are available across three different funded programmes.

As a volunteer, you will be helping to raise aspirations and build personal connections with people in the local community, as well as developing new skills and building on existing experience.

All volunteers must be a minimum of 16 years old.

Premier League Kicks

Funded by the Premier League, Premier League Kicks offers young people aged 11-19 in the most deprived parts of South East Essex access to free football sessions, sports sessions and workshops, providing them with opportunities, support and pathways to achieve their full potential.

The Kicks programme gives young people something positive to focus on and enhances their social skills.

As a volunteer, you will play a direct part in helping the sessions run smoothly, refereeing games and engaging with participants.

This role would be weekly (subject to availability) at one of the Trust’s venues.

Every Player Counts

The Every Player Counts programme aims to increase sports participation for all and covers a wide range of disabilities with the simple aim of getting more disabled people involved in sport. The emphasis is on increasing participation, improving health and championing the social benefits of taking part in sport.

As a volunteer, you will play a direct part in helping the sessions run smoothly and engaging with participants.

This role would be weekly (subject to availability) at one of the Trust’s venues.

BBC Children in Need

The BBC Children in Need programme aims to give disabled participants a stepping stone into opportunities in sport. Sessions are delivered amongst schools and community groups.

As a volunteer, you will play a direct part in helping the sessions run smoothly and engaging with participants.

This role would be weekly (subject to availability) at one of the Trust’s venues.

There are no specific skills required to be a volunteer with the Trust. However, a DBS check will need to be completed as part of the application process.

Volunteering can also lead to additional pathways such as routes into education, apprenticeships and coaching qualifications.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or finding out more information, please contact Dan Hall on 01702 341351 or d.hall@southendunited-cet.co.uk.
