Why Support Us


A valuable way to support the work of Disability Sport NI is offering your free time to volunteer at our programmes or events throughout the year.

Volunteering is a great way to give something back to your local community whilst meeting new people, developing new skills and sharing your existing skills and experience with us.

Activity Volunteers
Disability Sport NI runs sports events, regular clubs and activity programmes for people with disabilities at locations throughout Northern Ireland and enthusiastic volunteers are always welcome to help out perhaps as time-keepers, referees, runners or to offer extra support at our clubs.

Office/Administration Volunteers
You may like to volunteer some of your time to help with general administrative tasks at our office in Belfast. If you have a particular skill set and background in an area such as marketing, design, finance or human resources we would love to hear from you to see if there is a way you could share your experience with us.

Fundraising Volunteers
Disability Sport NI organises a number of fundraising events at various locations throughout Northern Ireland and we always need volunteers to help at activities such as bag packs, street collections or disability sport demonstration fundraisers. If you could spare a few hours from time-to-time, please sign up to go onto our ‘pool’ of fundraising volunteers.

You will receive regular email notifications of upcoming fundraisers and you can choose to help or not based on your availability. All we ask is that fundraising volunteers try to make a minimum commitment to help out at four fundraisers per year.

To apply to be a volunteer, please contact our Community Sports Development Officer on
