Every Body Active 2020

Every Body Active 2020 Strand 1

We have secured £1.5 million of National Lottery Funding to deliver Sport Northern Ireland’s Every Body Active 2020 programme. 

The aim of Every Body Active 2020 encourages everyone to be more active, more often.

We want to increase the number of people taking part in sport and physical activity, especially among: 

  • women and girls
  • people with a disability
  • those in areas of greatest social need.

We want to help people to enjoy, engage and excel in sport.
