Get Inspired: How to get into volunteering

Are you feeling heroic? Want to make a difference in your local community? Eddie Izzard, together with Join In, is on a quest to find real, local heroes to get involved in volunteering in all areas of sport.

See our helpful guide to find out more about volunteering and how you can get involved.
