Cavan and Monaghan Sports Inclusion Programme


 

Sports Inclusion Programme

The sports inclusion programme is a joint initiative between both Cavan and Monaghan Sports Partnership, launched in 2008 to assist in helping to address the imbalance in opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in sport and physical activity, which has become an important national goal. 

 

Objectives of the programme:

·         Sustainable Participation: To support sustainable participation opportunities for people with disabilities through the provision of quality initiatives, engaging with the existing clubs and the wider community.

·         Partnerships: To create effective partnerships to underpin the development of sustainable participation for people with disabilities in sport, fitness and physical activity.

·         Capacity Building: To encourage clubs and volunteers to support the participation of people with disabilities in sport, fitness and physical activity through the facilitation of training, information and awareness raising.  

·         Awareness: To provide information and promote all opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in sustainable sport, fitness and physical activity at local, regional and national level.
