There is no doubt, Stocksbridge Community Leisure Centre would not be where we are today without the overwhelming and continued support from the local community. Our volunteer army provide us with many hundreds of hours cleaning, repairing, fixing, painting, gardening, shifting furniture and equipment  to help keep the Centre operational.

Volunteering can be a very rewarding way of helping a worthy cause. Not only are you helping us, you can also meet new people, make new friends, socialise and develop new skills – or pass yours onto a younger generation!


Volunteers give up their time freely to help out in whatever way they can. Anyone over the age of 16 is welcomed to join our team of unpaid ambassadors. You don’t have to have a skill, just a commitment to what we are trying to achieve. A multi -purpose community run leisure centre on our doorstep. If you have a skill – even better.  If you have skills in administration, reception, supervision (general or sport related), accounting, roofing, plumbing, electrics, decorating, gardening, first aid, marketing or anything else you think we might find useful please think about volunteering.

You can volunteer a few hours or many hours – it’s up to you. It doesn’t matter how old you are, or if you have a disability. You can volunteer your time at weekends, during weekdays or in the evenings.

Why I volunteer…

I became a volunteer after I retired.  I needed something to keep my mind and body active. I enjoy meeting people and helping wherever I can. (Jenny – Age 72)

Volunteering at the Leisure Centre is enjoyable, interesting and making a contribution to the community.  It’s also an opportunity to get out of the house and meet people.  (Keith Age 64)                    

One of the things that I missed when I first retired, was meeting a variety of people.  The Leisure Centre has lots of friendly people working there, so it made a lot of difference to me socially.  It is also such a vital and important health facility for the community.  (Jane – Age 68)

I am an 81 year old pensioner who volunteers on Reception at SCLC.  Volunteering gives me a reason to get up in a morning.  The Staff are friendly and Management are appreciative for our time.  If you have a couple of hours to spare each week, give it a go, you may enjoy it and you will be helping our Community.  (Jack – Age 81)
