Volunteer with Up and Active

Volunteers are the lifeblood of a number of our initiatives across our area. There are many individuals who willingly devote their time and energy to make our local physical activity programs a success.

Do you think you are?

  • Observant,
  • Enthusiastic,
  • Punctual and Reliable,
  • Patient,
  • Organised,
  • A good communicator,
  • Approachable.

If yes, then we want to hear from you.

Up and Active volunteers can now earn Spice Time Credits for some of the volunteering work they do.

Time credits are a way of thanking people for the time that they give to their local community.  If a person gives 1 hour of time to a community organisation, they earn 1 time credit that can be spent on a range of activities in the local area for example, an adult learning course, at a leisure centre, a physiotherapy session or a show at the local theatre.

As well as recognising the value of individual contribution, Time Credits strengthens and builds communities by engaging those who may not normally get very involved in their local area. The scheme encourages people to be involved in different ways and it helps to build local networks, by linking community groups, organisations and individuals.

Time credits are similar to bank notes but have no monetary value. For more information on time credits and where they can be spent, please click here
