Paying volunteers


Sports Clubs and Governing Bodies rely heavily on volunteers for administration, coaching and other essential tasks. Sports Council research in 1995 found that the value of volunteers' services was over 1.5 billion. Volunteers traditionally provide support free of charge (apart from claiming expenses) for the love of their sport. Indeed, many clubs and governing bodies would be hard pressed to remunerate them on a fully paid basis.
