Location: Hybrid working. Minimum 2 to 3 days in Access Sport’s Bristol office – Origin Workspace, 40 Berkeley Square, Bristol, BS8 1HP.

Hours: 37.5 hour per week, full-time

Salary: £24,000 FTE

Closing Date: 17th April 2024

Role purpose


Access Sport is looking for a new Community Coordinator within our growing Changing Places team. This is an exciting opportunity to support the growth of our work across Bristol and deliver on our ambitious
growth strategy, with a strong focus on making sport more inclusive and accessible for disabled children and young people in deprived communities.

The post holder will support, train and equip community clubs to offer inclusive opportunities. This will include training and upskilling clubs and supporting them through their club development journey, organising taster sessions and events, promoting opportunities to new participants and connecting with the local communities and partners.

Community sport has many benefits for disadvantaged and disabled young people including improving their physical and mental wellbeing, life skills and prospects, sense of belonging and community engagement. However disabled people are half as likely to be active than non-disabled people, and a third of children in Bristol live in poverty.

There will be the opportunity for this role to support our social inclusion work in the city and the development of our Young Leaders work, in addition to working with our new Youth Voice Group – a diverse group of young people who will help inform and refine our work.
