South Dublin County Sports Partnership launched its Sports Inclusion Disability Programme today. It is financially supported by South Dublin County Council and Sport Ireland. Áine Coogan was also appointed as Sports Inclusion Disability Officer (SIDO) to oversee the management of the programme.
The programme aims to increase the participation of people with disabilities in sport and recreational physical activity. This will be achieved through working in partnership with statutory agencies, sports clubs, community groups, facility providers, schools, disability service providers and people with disabilities. Key elements of the programme include sustainable physical recreation, information provision, training and education.
South Dublin County Sports Partnership said they delighted to have Áine on board to help address the needs of a very important audience and encourages any group or individual looking for additional information regarding sport and physical activity for people with disabilities to contact Aine on 01-41492000 Ext: 4220 or email [email protected]
