Sport Northern Ireland
Sport Northern Ireland is the leading public body for the development of sport in Northern Ireland.
Their corporate vision is to promote “a culture of lifelong enjoyment and success in sport which contributes to a healthy, fair and prosperous society.”
In practice, this means we create and develop programmes and partnerships that will address our three strategic objectives:
• Increased participation in sport and physical recreation;
• Improved sporting performances; and
• Improved efficiency and effectiveness in the administration of sport
Sport Northern Ireland strive to achieve its vision by providing leadership and supporting its partners, investing National Lottery and Executive funding where it is needed, and ensuring the implementation of ‘Sport Matters’: The Northern Ireland Strategy for Sport and Physical Recreation, 2009-2019.
Sport Northern Ireland works in partnership with the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL) to deliver on Sport Matters. This Strategy sets out a new shared sporting vision of "a culture of lifelong enjoyment and success in sport", as well as the key strategic priorities for sport and physical recreation, and informs the direction of future investment – underpinning three areas: Participation, Performance and Places.
