Council Seeks Expressions for Support for PEACE IV Cross Border and Cross Community Youth Sports Programme
24th May 2018
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council wishes to invite expressions of interest from applicants within the community, sport and voluntary sectors under the PEACE IV Cross Border and Cross Community Youth Sports Programme. This project is one of fifteen included in the Fermanagh and Omagh PEACE IV Local Action Plan which is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
The Programme is aimed at delivering coach led sessions, supported by Leisure, Recreation and Sports PEACE IV Coaches, involving minority sports that engage children and young people in activities which they enjoy while forming positive relationships with people that they would not normally socialise or play sport with. The intensity of engagement for each participant (8 – 24 years old) must equate to a minimum period of 6 months or equivalent (26 hours).
It has been determined that at least 12 youth minority sports groups / clubs will be established or supported in the District in sports which are not traditionally played in the Fermanagh and Omagh area. Funding of approximately £1400 is available to successful applicants for venue hire, sports equipment and coach education, with a view to ensuring the sustainability of activities after the programme has concluded.
The selection of applicants will be based on their submission at the Expression of Interest (EOI) stage. A number of groups / clubs have been assessed and selected through the first call for Expressions of Interest. Any applications submitted in this call will be assessed separately to those already selected. If applicable, a reserve list will be created. An expression of interest form and guidance notes can be downloaded from www.fermanaghomagh.com.
Completed forms should be returned no later than 12 noon on Wednesday 6 June 2018 in a sealed envelope clearly marked on the outside ‘PEACE IV Youth Sports Programme’ to: Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Townhall, 2 Townhall Street, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh, BT74 7BA or The Sperrin Centre, 1 Market Street, Omagh, Co.Tyrone, BT78 1EE or alternatively, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Expression of Interest Forms received after this date and time will be deemed ineligible.
