Every Body Active 2020 is a four year lottery funded programme aimed at getting people more active more often through sport and physical activity in Northern Ireland.

Sport Northern Ireland has invested £6.2 million in the 11 District Councils across Northern Ireland to help increase quality opportunities for targeted groups to increase participation in sport and physical activities across key life-course transitions (for example children moving from primary school to post-primary, young people leaving education, having a family, or retiring from work)

In particular we will be targeting increases in participation among traditionally underrepresented groups which include:

  • Women and girls (specifically aged 14-25)
  • People with a disability; and
  • Those living in areas of greatest social need (specifically people living within the top 25% of wards designated by NI Multiple Deprivation Measure Index 2010)

Each of our 11 district councils (see list below) will be working closely with clubs, schools, and community organisations to provide opportunities to get involved in a wide range of sports and activities in your local area at a time and place to suit you.
