Active CommunitiesWe've teamed up with Sport NI to launch Active Communities, a new four-year programme designed to help Belfast get active.
Funded by Sport Northern Ireland, the scheme aims to increase participation in sport and physical recreation in communities across the city, particularly amongst under-represented groups including women and girls, people with a disability and older people.
As part of Active Communities, Sport Northern Ireland is investing £2.7 million to recruit and train a network of more than 20 coaches, and we're working together with Belfast Community Sports Development Network (BCSDN), Disability Sport NI and various sports governing bodies to employ these specialist coaches and activity leaders.
Once recruited, they will help to deliver sports and other activities to more than 15,000 Belfast residents in leisure and community centres and school and church halls throughout the city. Activities on offer will include:
- Gaelic games
