Waterford SportsAbility Forum – ‘Healthy active participation for all’

Waterford’s Sports Ability Forum was established in 2016, with representatives from various Disability Organisations, Voluntary and Statutory Organisations and National Governing Bodies. Since 2016, the Forum has gone from strength to strength and has developed a clear vision, mission and six core values : Inclusiveness | Quality |Relationships | Empowerment |Advocacy| Respect. which encompass everything that the Forum is about. The Forums mission is ‘To actively promote inclusion and enable participation in sport and physical activity for people with a disability’.

In order to achieve this, the Forum meet quarterly and share information on what physical activity opportunities are available for people with a disability in Waterford. In addition to this the Forums members are proactive in their approach and have identified a number of physical activity gaps that need to be addressed in Waterford at present. To date the forum has been successful in contributing to the establishment of the Déise Dragons, Multi Sport Club for children and young people with a physical disability as well as running a very successful SportsAbility Day.

The forum is always looking for new members, if you or your organisation is interested
