Sport Lisburn - Get Active, Stay Fit

Every Body Active 2020

Active Communities is an investment programme that seeks to employ, deploy and train a network of full time and part time sports coaches and leaders to deliver activities in community and club settings across Northern Ireland, with a view of increasing participation in sport and physical recreation, especially among under represented groups.

Through the Active Communities investment programme, Sport NI wishes to work in partnership with key stakeholders to achieve the following programme outcomes:

 

  • The creation of a network of community sports coaches and leaders to deliver sport and recreational activities in sports club and community settings;
  • Increased participation in sport and physical recreation among under represented groups including young people, older people, women and girls, people with a disability, people from minority ethnic groups and people from socio-economically deprived groups;
  • The provision of opportunities that support lifelong participation in sport and physical recreation in sports club and community settings;
  • The development of effective working partnerships within and between District Councils, Governing Bodies of sport, schools, sports clubs, and statutory, community and voluntary organisations.
