Many People with diasabilties are precluded from participating in sports and physical activity.
The Sports Inclusion Disabiltiy Officer Programme helps to address the imbalance in opportunities for people with disabilties to particpate in Sport and Physical Activity through working in partnership with all stakeholders.
The Sports Partnership have developed a Disability Forum which we see as a strong link between the LSP and disability clubs/organisations in Limerick City and County.
Representatives will tackle issues of mutual interest, discover methods of overcoming problems and identify best practice. The Disability Forum allows for better communication between disability clubs/organisations and acts as a coordinated voice for local level disability clubs/organisations throughout Limerick.
Membership of the Forum is as follows:
|Mick Kelliher||Special Olympics|
|Joe McCarthy||Special Schools|
|Dr. Elizabeth O'Mahony||Limerockers Cru|
|Siobhán Garvey||Enable Ireland|
|Steven Casey||Mid West Spina Bifida|
|Val Real||National Learning Network|
|Denis Griffin||Down Syndrome|
|Christine Keane||West Limerick Children's Services|
