WSP Commits to Sports Inclusion Disability Charter

Published: April 30, 2019


On Saturday 27th April at our SportsAbility Event at WIT Arena we welcomed Doireann Ní Mhuircheartaigh who had traveled from the Cara Centre in Tralee to support the event and to witness Waterford Sports Partnership’s public signing of Ireland’s  first ever Sports Inclusion Disability Charter specific to the participation of people with disabilities in sport and physical activity.

The Charter, which was developed by the Cara Centre in partnership with people with disabilities, clearly outlines the five key areas people with disabilities are asking all organisations to consider in making active and healthy lifestyles possible for them.

Following the signing WSP Co-ordinator Rosarie Kealy said ‘we wanted to use this public opportunity to show our support and formally sign up to the Sports Inclusion Disability Charter,  promote its importance and encourage all organisations to sign up to the Charter too.‘

By signing the Sports Inclusion Disability Charter we have committed to:

1. Openness: Be open to and understanding of all people with disabilities

2. People: Access training for our staff/volunteers to facilitate the inclusion of people with disabilities

3. Activities: Develop and deliver inclusive activities

4. Facilities: Review our facility/venues/equipment to make our organisation more accessible

5. Promotion: Promote the inclusive nature of our activities, in a variety of formats
