British Weight Lifting seeks feedback from volunteers

British Weight Lifting (BWL) is canvassing opinion from volunteers in a bid to help clubs maximise their success.

The governing body has released a survey which it hopes will produce the information required to help clubs move forward.

A statement on the BWL website read: “Volunteers have always played a vital part in the sports and physical activity sector.

“That’s why we are committed to ensuring clubs have the right support to recruit and retain the volunteers they need to ensure their club is the best it can be.

“To help us do this, we are consulting clubs across England to understand more about the volunteers who give their time to clubs.

“Importantly, and at the heart of this consultation, we also want to know more about the challenges clubs face and the support they need to help them ensure their volunteers have quality, enjoyable experiences.


“By completing this survey, you will be providing invaluable information which will help both British Weight Lifting and Sport England understand better how we can support clubs to recruit and retain the volunteers they need to run their club and to improve the volunteering experience.

“Your support for this important piece of research is greatly appreciated and ultimately, will help us help community sports clubs be even more successful.”

All responses to the survey, which can be completed here, are confidential.

BWL has asked for the survey to be filled in by July 19.
