COMMUNITY SPORTS & PHYSICAL ACTIVITY HUB
Monaghan Sports Partnership is calling for Expressions of Interest for the development of a Community Sports Hub in Co. Monaghan.
A Community Sports and Physical Activity Hub is a collective of progressive sports clubs and other local organisations that want to work together to improve the sport offered in their local community. The Hubs will provide information, support and advice on a wide range of sports and physical activities to make it easier for people in disadvantaged areas to get involved and engage in a more active and healthier lifestyle. The Hubs will recognise the diversity of their local communities and will seek to reach out and increase participation from all corners of the community.
Each Hub will be unique, however they work to certain principles, namely grow participation, engage the local community, promote community leadership, offer a range of sporting opportunities and bring all appropriate (key) partners/ groups/people together.
Vision and Mission of the Community Sports and Physical Activity Hubs:
Vision: The vision of a Hub is to increase the number of people of all ages participating in sport and physical activity in their communities.
Mission: The mission of the Community Sports and Physical Activity Hubs in disadvantaged areas is to bring local people together and provide a home for local clubs and sports organisations.
Types of Hubs
A Hub must be focused on one of the following themes:
- Community Sports Hub
This is a Hub where the community is at the heart and is centred around community participation. This includes developing and strengthening linkages between the community, sports clubs and other physical activity groups.
- School Community Sports Hub
This is a Hub that maximises sports facility usage through linkages with the local schools, community, sports clubs and other physical activity groups.
- Outdoor Community Sports Hub
This Hub will focus on the development of the outdoor space as a hub, increasing the linkages between the community, sports clubs and other physical activity groups.
If an expression of interest meets criteria, an application may be made by Monaghan Sports Partnership on behalf of the Community for up to €50,000 support funding
Expression of interest application and guidelines are available at www.monaghansports.ie
(An expression of interest does not guarantee an application for funding will be made)
Closing date: Friday 20th March 2019
The Community Sports Hub Initiative (CSH) is funded by Sport Ireland via the Dormant Accounts Fund
