Chantel Scherer: Hot Topic Briefer for Collaborate – Share – Learn

Categories: Active Sussex News

Chantel Scherer will lead a hot topic briefing at this year's Active Sussex Conference; 'GIVERS – volunteering in sport: how to recruit, retain and reward volunteers.'

Chantel Scherer is a senior communications professional with over 20 years’ experience implementing successful, integrated, strategic communications across large, complex organisations – many of them working with volunteers.

The Sport and Recreation Alliance is the voice of the sport and recreation sector and works to get the nation active. Chantel is Director of Marketing, Communications and Member Engagement which means she looks after the Join In brand, which was set up after the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to capitalise on the power of major sporting events to benefit grassroots clubs.

Prior to joining the Alliance, she was Head of Communications at Samaritans, a leading mental health and suicide prevention charity, working with over 22,000 volunteers who deliver the charity’s service to nearly 6 million callers a year.

Recruiting, managing and rewarding volunteers is extremely important and valuable to the sport and recreation sector. Sport has the power to change lives and bring communities together and nurturing and growing volunteers is an important aspect to this.

Without volunteers – sport and recreation in the UK wouldn’t exist.
