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.

“After taking early retirement, I decided that I wanted to get into volunteering, so initially worked for the Samaritans.
Having enjoyed the experience, I was informed about the need for volunteers at SCLC and became a member of the volunteer team in December 2022.
My role currently, is assisting the cleaning volunteer team with cleaning the dry side changing rooms and toilets on a Tuesday morning. It has actually motivated me to clean my own house when I get home, so I can’t knock it!
I also volunteer for St. Luke’s in Hillsborough on a Thursday afternoon”.
If you are interested in becoming one of our valued volunteers, we have lots of varied opportunities.  Just call at Reception or contact the Centre on 0114 2883792 to make an enquiry.
