The Sport Ireland Participation Plan (2021-2024) outlines the approach that will be taken to realise the sports participation commitments in the National Sports Policy (NSP) 2018-2027. A clear priority identified in the Participation Plan is to “develop and invest in evidence informed participation communications plan and campaign to promote sports participation” while also recognising the commitment in the Sport Ireland strategy to “develop and implement a communications campaign to target specific population groups”. In order to advance the various communications commitments contained in the National Sports Policy, Sport Ireland Strategy, Participation Plan and LSP Insights report an LSP communications project fund is being established.
The project will be lead by the creation of 3 new LSP Communication Posts – 1 National and 2 Regional.
The National LSP Communications Co-ordinator will be hosted by Meath Local LSP. The Regional LSP Communications Officers will be hosted by Kilkenny Recreation & Sport Partnership covering Leinster and Ulster (Donegal, Cavan & Monaghan) and Clare LSP covering Munster and Connacht.
