Join In is the volunteering and social legacy charity of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Our mission is to put more volunteers into community sport, in order to help them lead fitter, happier and healthier lives.

Our beneficiaries are any organisation or project requiring volunteers for initiatives using sport to do social good. Typically these are local sports clubs, community events, youth projects with elements of sport or physical activity or mass participation events such as charity or community running events (e.g. Cancer Research's Race for Life, parkrun). Anyone using sport or physical activity to for social good can use Join In to help them find volunteers to support their ongoing activity or one-off event.


We are a public-facing digital campaigning organisation that seeks to inspire 100,000 new and retained volunteers a year for community sport. We match these volunteers to local clubs, projects and events that need them through our website. We also run networks of Join In's volunteers - which we call Local Leaders - who support our activity locally and are ambassadors for Join In and community sport more broadly.
