It is with great pleasure VolunteerKinetic can announce they are now the volunteer platform for Greater Sport. Working with the County Sports Partnership to extend our hugely successful work with Manchester City Council. Greater Sport requested a volunteer service that offered the people of Greater Manchester more choice whilst allowing the Local Authorities a level of local administration and control.
As a County Sports Partnership, Greater Sport had identified how successful Manchester City Council had been in recruiting and deploying Volunteers both for their clubs and their major events program. They identified how as a CSP area volunteers could benefit from seamless sharing of volunteer opportunities across the Local Authorities whilst also providing the level of local insight demanded by the ten local authorities of Greater Manchester.
This did pose a number of major technical challenges, as each Local Authority had different requirements and were able to offer significantly different levels of support to their volunteers. The team at VolunteerKinetic worked closely with GreaterSport to develop a workable solution and we are proud to announce our Pilot project is up and running with plans for much wider roll out early into the new year.
It is ours and Greater Sports belief, that this new service will allow the generous and sports mad people of Greater Manchester to access some of the finest events and clubs the UK has to offer.
