Become a Volunteer

We'll be back soon

Please stick with us while we continue to work on bringing back opportunities to volunteer with Active Communities. Like everyone, COVID-19 has presented us with many challenges, but we’re working hard to make sure we can bring back volunteering opportunities in a safe, but most of all enjoyable way.

If you have any questions, you can still get in touch with our team by emailing volunteer@edinburghleisure.co.uk or calling us on 0131 458 2260.

Anybody that was volunteering with an Active Communities project in March 2020 that wishes to return to volunteering should contact the project team for more information.

Volunteering with Edinburgh Leisure

Edinburgh Leisure uses the power of physical activity to help those in need improve their health and wellbeing and we couldn’t do this without the support of volunteers. Volunteers are at the heart of many of the initiatives and services that we deliver and add great value to our programmes and events.

It’s our ambition that everyone who volunteers with us feels welcomed, valued, understood and proud to be part of Edinburgh Leisure. Whether its hours, days or months the time you give really does matter.

Movement For Memories...

Volunteer to support people living with dementia in being active. Movement For Memories is supported with funding from the Life Changes Trust. The Trust is funded by the Big Lottery.

Get Active...

Volunteers can help support in a range of activities which are ideal for those who feel it has been a long time since they were last active and are looking for a gentle start to help improve their health.

Fit For Health...

Volunteers are able to support people with long term health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, heart failure and/or diabetes, helping them to manage their symptoms and live better through physical activity.

Steady Steps...

Volunteers are sought over a longer term basis to assist the specialist instructor at the classes and are required to volunteer a minimum of two hours each week.

Ageing Well...

After initial training, volunteers use physical activity to improve health and tackle social isolation in older adults across Edinburgh. There are a range of activities to suit every interest.
