Key words: community groups, Northern Ireland, support, NGBs
We asked Sported members in Northern Ireland questions via an online questionnaire about where they accessed support. Out of the 47 responses, 28% were not affiliated with an NGB and only 39% knew where to find support. The report highlights the limited support available to support groups to become more sustainable.
The research calls for a sector-wide approach to measure, build and grow sustainability to all Northern Ireland clubs, and should include both affiliated and non-affiliated clubs.
