Call for Sports Coaches & DBS Checked Volunteers

Posted by Helen Park on 20 March 2020

We are proud to announce the launch of the Magpies Community Care Initiative which will go live on Monday 23rd March, and through which we will provide support to the elderly and vulnerable residents in our local community who are unable to leave home whilst in self isolation.  The initiative aims to overcome some of the challenges that these residents will face, and our community DBS checked coaches/volunteers will be asked to undertake tasks such as:

  • Picking up supplies
  • Picking up a prescription
  • Posting a letter
  • Walking the dog

We want to offer a comprehensive support programme accessible via a dedicated hotline which we will have manned 7 days a week from 9am to 5pm.  We think the telephone hotline is important as our focus is to ensure support for the most vulnerable in the community who are less likely to have access to web and social media. We want to protect the safety of the individuals and families who need our support by building a network of trusted volunteers all of which as minimum will hold a valid an up to date DBS. We believe the community sports and wellbeing network is well placed to make a real difference as all coaches, referees etc in this field are DBS checked.

We are now looking to expand our network of DBS checked volunteers.  If you believe you can help and are interested in volunteering please contact our Magpies in the Community team by emailing helen@maidenheadunitedfc.org or sasha@maidenheadunitedfc.org or (from Monday) telephone our Magpies Community Care hotline on 01628 367875. Please have the following information available: 

  • Name:
  • Details of a valid DBS Certificate
  • Address (to help match you to local tasks)
  • Contact Information
  • E-mail
  • Availability
  • Information on any tasks you would not be able to do
