As the lead agency for the development of sport in Northern Ireland, the Sports Council is delighted to announce the launch of a new investment programme for sport.  The ‘Sport in Our Community’ investment programme is a culmination of several months of consultation with the sporting community and the evaluation of the ‘Investing in Sport’ and ‘Community Sport’ programme.


The Sports Council for Northern Ireland recognises its role in providing vision and strategic leadership for sport.  It is committed to targeting support and delivering tangible outcomes that benefit the sporting community and wider society.  The Sports Council values the important contribution made by the community, voluntary and statutory sectors to sport in Northern Ireland and work closely with these sectors to build capacity and sustainability in development.


The Sports Council for Northern Ireland believes that by investing in community sport, real progress can be made in meeting the Council’s Corporate Plan outcomes of:


-         Increased number of physically literate young people;

-         Increased participation in sport and physical activity among under

          represented groups;

-         A competent sporting workforce;

-         Professional, accountable and autonomous sporting organisations;

-         Increased efficiency through improved planning and administration;
