north west for 2012

Firefit ladies with the chief

The North West is renowned for the quality and range of sport and cultural volunteering opportunities available. Our region continually strives to be the gold standard nationally and has some fantastic opportunities to offer.

Through the five County Sport Partnerships - Greater Sport, Merseyside Sport, Lancashire Sport, Cheshire Sport and Active Cumbria - you can access volunteering programmes such as the School Games, Sport Makers, local London 2012 inspired programmes and Training Camps.

Local Authorities have opportunities around the Torch Relay coming in March and some shining examples of events involving the Games include the Preston Guild 2012.

The region will be hosting some of the national Games Makers and Young Games Makers at Old Trafford.

Plus, across the North West opportunities are available at Cultural Olympiad events such as Lakes Alive, WE PLAY and Abandon Normal Devices.
