Sport NI Consultation on Everybody Active 2020

Sport Northern Ireland begin public consultations on new participation initiative ‘Everybody Active 2020‘ – an investment model which been put forward to replace the Active Communities Programme, which is due to end next March.

The Board of Sport Northern Ireland has approved a policy paper regarding the proposed  initiative.

he paper recommends that women, people with a disability, older people and those living in areas of high social need continue to be prioritised as they are under-represented in sport.

There are four proposed strands which centre on a theme of ‘Everybody Active’:

  1. Opportunities;
  2. Workforce Development;
  3. Outdoor Spaces; and
  4. Small Grants.

The paper recommends an indicative investment of around £14m in the period 2015-2020. This would support the delivery of Sport Northern Ireland’s draft Corporate Plan.
