The Gateway to the Games volunteer programme is one of the outstanding projects granted the London 2012 Inspire mark, the badge of the London 2012 Inspire programme which recognises exceptional and innovative projects inspired by the 2012 Games.
The Inspire programme is an opportunity for everyone to be a part of the London 2012 Games; a broad participation programme spanning sport participation, education, sustainability, volunteering and business opportunities and skills.
New opportunities are being created to inspire young people and encourage the whole of the UK to join in.

The programme offers local people a chance to get involved in the exciting journey to 2012 by giving volunteers opportunities to steward and officiate at sporting and cultural events in and out of the borough plus leading healthy walks in the borough, fundraising and administrative work.

“Gateway to the Games Volunteer Programme is encouraging volunteers to fulfil their potential. I am proud that with the help of partners such as the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham who are delivering on our vision to use the power of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to boost participation in volunteering.”
