PEACE IV Youth Sports Programme

Call for Expressions of Interest

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council invites expressions of interest from groups or organisations within the community and voluntary sectors under the PEACE IV Cross Border and Cross Community Youth Sport Programme.

The Programme is aimed at delivering an inclusive youth initiative, supported by Leisure, Recreation and Sports PEACE IV coaches, involving minority sports that engage young people in sporting activities which they enjoy while forming positive relationships with people that they would not normally socialise or play sport with.

It has been determined that at least 12 Youth Minority Sports Groups should be established in the District in sports which are not traditionally played in the Fermanagh and Omagh area and where a recognised sports club does not currently exist. The delivery team will endeavour to achieve as equitable spread across the District Council area as possible.

The selection of groups or organisations to establish a Youth Minority Sports Group will be based on their submission at the Expression of Interest (EOI) stage. EOI’s will be subject to an assessment and the 12 groups / organisations deemed most suitable will go forward provided they pass the minimum eligibility threshold.

An Expression of Interest form for the programme is now available for download as are the Guidelines for the completion of the form.

Completed forms should be returned no later than 12 noon on Thursday 30 November 2017 in a sealed envelope clearly marked on the outside ‘Youth Sport Programme’ to: Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Townhall, 2 Townhall Street, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh, BT74 7BA or alternatively, via email to Expression of Interest Forms received after this date and time will be deemed ineligible.
