Volunteer Training Programme

Background

In July 2014, the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government adopted the Dormant Accounts Action Plan 2014 under the Dormant Accounts (Amendment) Act 2012.  The Action Plan outlined measures under a number of Government Departments, totalling over €19 million to be disbursed from the Dormant Accounts Fund.  The Plan included the following two sports measures submitted by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport:

1.        Community Sport and Physical Activity Hubs 

2.        National Sport Education and Training Hub

The plan can be viewed at the following address:

Funding was granted to Sport Ireland for the two sports measures in 2015 and 2016.

Volunteer Support Programme

As part of the National Sport Education and Training Hub measure, there are a range of approved programmes and projects. One of these is a Volunteer Support Programme.  Sport Ireland acknowledges that there is a significant need within National Governing Bodies for volunteer learning and development support. It is recognised that these volunteers operate at all levels, from local clubs up to regional and national level roles within an NGB.  We believe that assistance for this particular demographic will result in enhanced skills for the volunteers and an increased likelihood in their retention as active participants in sports and physical activity. Details of the 2015 Volunteer Training Programme are attached below and volunteers may book themselves on to course's in the links attached.
