Volunteer

Help Change Lives Through Sports

Volunteering is about making a difference in other people’s lives through giving, contributing, and assisting them as well as the community at large. It is not just an act to help or benefit other people, but it can also make a difference in our own lives through meeting people with similar interests as well as from all walks of life.

No help is too little as we work to empower people with disabilities to reach their potential. As a voluntary welfare organisation (VWO) and registered IPC charity, the support of our volunteers is vital.
