The Clare PPN is calling for nominations for the following position:

Clare PPN representative on the Clare Local Sports Partnership Board

This representative role is open to Clare PPN members from the Community and Voluntary pillar.

The Clare Local Sports Partnership (CLSP) was established in 2001 by the Irish Sports Council (ISC), now known as Sport Ireland (SI) as part of the Local Sports Partnership Initiative ‘A New Era for Sport’. This approach was the first national physical activity participation strategy funded through a dedicated state agency.  CLSP works with key stakeholders nationally and within the county, to target audiences and deliver specified activities and projects. The key target markets which have been the focus of development over the previous number of years include:

  • Women in Sport
  • Older Adults
  • People with Disabilities
  • School Children
  • Unemployed People
  • Disadvantaged Youths
  • Immigrant Communities

CLSP is governed by a board of directors and representative of key agencies throughout the county including Clare Public Participation Network.  Representatives also individually sit on sub-committees with reporting functions to the board.
