We’re a Social Enterprise that means #PeopleBeforeProfit and our volunteers are an essential part of our offer

Life at Halo Leisure is not like being in other gyms or sports centre. We are smart and savvy – we know our customers want to work out in stunning spaces using the best equipment – but our Social Enterprise status (with all profits ploughed back into the work we do to get more people more active more often) means we use commercial principles for community good, putting people before profit. And we’ve won plenty of awards for the difference we’ve made to people as we’ve grown since (we now manage leisure centres across four counties including Herefordshire, Shropshire, Wiltshire and Bridgend County).

As a volunteer you will be a member of this community, networking with and working alongside incredible people and using your skills – and we welcome volunteers not only with sporting skills (you don’t need to have any to sign up) but with customer service skills or those invaluable people skills (kindness, empathy, team working and more) that can add value to the groups we run here and the visitors we welcome into centres to work out or wind down.

We offer support at every level, for every ability, at every age, and our staff and volunteers are learning too, from each other and ongoing training

At Halo we welcome everyone from elite athletes training for international competitions to school children wanting to learn to swim, from teams coming into our centres for tennis, football, squash, circuits and classes to individuals sent to us by their GP to aid recovery or prevent ill health.
And so many others in between. Every one of them is welcome, and every one receives support to help them reach their goals.

We have a team who live our values and change lives everyday

This is a way of working that influences the decisions we make and the people who volunteer for us. Our staff and volunteers get it – the community benefit at the heart of this organisation – and live and breathe our mission to promote physical and mental health, articulating it to the community in the way they work and the support they offer.

Our volunteers – like our staff – enjoy ongoing training while they are with us and, crucially, learn new skills from each other and our full-time team and the very different people with different backgrounds and different needs who come into our centres. Our volunteers find what they put in the more they get out, in terms of connections with others, satisfaction from serving their community, and skills they can use in the future which many say give them a platform and sense of purpose for the future.

Volunteering at Halo is your chance to give something back to your local community! Halo is a registered charity who aims to make a difference to the lives of others in our local community not just through physical activity but through forging friendships, supporting social activities and supporting people’s mental wellbeing too.

People volunteer with Halo for a variety of reasons...

Give something back – support Halo – your local leisure charity and gain a sense of achievement from giving back to your local community.

Make a difference to the lives of others in your local community from helping children learn a life saving skill by learning to swim or supporting our weekly Dementia meetup groups.

Betty’s Volunteer Journey at Halo

Daniel’s Volunteer Journey at Halo

Daniel first came to Leominster Leisure Centre as a 15 year old on school work experience which led to him securing a voluntary position. We were very lucky to have Daniel as a volunteer for 9 months helping out in the cafe but most of his time he could be found in the pool working alongside a swimming instructor, supporting children on the learn to swim programme. After successfully achieving the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification, we were delighted to offer Daniel a position as part of our lifeguarding team.

Daniel’s efforts were recognised when he was awarded Halo’s ‘Volunteer of the Year’.
