Swimmers, disciplines, parents, club volunteers, event volunteers, officials, young volunteers, elite athletes, staff. • Think about the time of day for tweets – generally mornings, lunch times and evenings are best as this is when people are typically on their phones • Think about who could be tag in the post to increase exposure eg. Swim England Volunteering, Swim England, NCVO, Sport England, etc • Remember to use the hashtag #volunteersweek • Change social media banners to the volunteer week ones provided. • Try and get as much of the content created in advance
