We continue to welcome all volunteering enquiries!

Sporting Memories in Wales is growing and we love to hear from potential volunteers. Although our Club sessions are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we know that once our sessions resume, our current and potential new volunteers will have a more important role than ever to play in continuing to tackle social isolation. Find out more about what makes volunteering with Sporting Memories so special.

We are looking to recruit over 100 volunteers in Wales as out network expands. Our current opportunities will be listed here.

To see whether there is a Sporting Memories Club in your area, visit our Find a Club page. Even if there is no Club yet in your area, we would still like to hear from you.

About Sporting Memories in Wales

Sporting Memories Network CIC is one of 17 organisations successful in the first phase of the Healthy and Active Fund, funded by a partnership of the Welsh Government, Sport Wales and Public Health Wales.

The award supports the development of Sporting Memories weekly reminiscence and physical activity sessions in Wales, working in partnership with Cardiff City FC Community Foundation, College of Human and Health Sciences, Swansea University, Derwen (Housing Association), Glamorgan County Cricket Club and Cricket Wales, Ospreys in the Community, Sporting Memories Network CIC, Swansea Council, Vi-Ability and The Pollen Shop.

The funding will allow us to open 30 new weekly volunteer-led Sporting Memories clubs over the next three years and across the local authority areas of Conwy and Denbighshire, Cardiff, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Neath Port Talbot, Newport, Swansea and the Vale of Glamorgan and also develop new reminiscence resources in both English and Welsh languages.

Our Replay cards have been designed to help prompt fond memories of watching or playing sport. We use them in our groups as a focus for discussion and these can be used just as effectively on a one-to-one basis to stimulate conversations.
