Come along and help out as a volunteer at FVDS.

Forth Valley Disability Sport is primarily a volunteer organisation, and all our committee members and coaches are volunteers. However, it does not stop at the committee and coaches.

FVDS are always on the lookout for people who are willing to lend a hand at the various events, clubs and sessions during the year. This can be as a coach, photographer, supporter, fundraiser or driver. The list is endless and any help people offer to help us delivery our aims, is always welcomed and appreciated. A helping hand is rarely turned away.

Local clubs are always looking for volunteers to help support their activities

To drive and develop our progressing project we’re continuously looking to welcome new volunteers on board. Are you keen to support your community? Are you free one or two hours per week? Enjoy being active outdoors? We’d love to hear from you. Free training and support is given.
