Sported passionately believes in the role of sport to transform local communities. We have been highly influential in building the credibility and effectiveness of ‘sport for development’ and supporting grassroots groups to capture the impact of their work at local level.
Funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, we wish to develop a Report (collection of digital, video and written stories) further exploring how sport has shaped local communities and identities across NI, over the past 100 years.
The Report will compile archive material through desk research and interviews with key stakeholders and capture oral case studies from the Sported network through events and focus groups. It will involve people from a range of backgrounds, encouraging them to engage with history and embrace diverse perspectives.
The Report will highlight the role Sport has played in shaping the identity of Northern Ireland’s communities in the past 100 years. This will be shared with key stakeholders across the sector – from volunteers at local sports clubs to Sport NI, Governing Bodies and other funders – to encourage ongoing support for this sector.
