The Sport Makers programme is a programme that aims to recruit, train and deploy 40,000 new sports volunteers aged 16 and over to organise and lead community sporting activities across the UK. It is part of the 'Places People Play' mass participation legacy by Sport England.
The Sports Makers' roles will be to organise and support new grassroots sports activities, creating new opportunities across the Black Country. They will help bring the Olympic and Paralympic values alive amongst local communities and will be part of the London 2012 Legacy.
The project will use the inspirational pull of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to recruit those 40,000 volunteers. Volunteers will have a positive and inspiring introduction to the world of sport volunteering via a series of free to attend workshops.
Sport Makers is open to everyone over the age of 16 - with workshops running from October 2011.
