Sport for Business is part of an extensive ecosystem that has grown up over the last decade providing knowledge and information around performance, participation and all the ways in which sport can impact upon our lives.

We run a significant number of events bringing our community together to do just that but there are times when it feels as though there are so many events that would be worthy of an hour, a morning or an evening of our time.

We have launched a new calendar where we hope to capture the events that will be of interest to you. We will use our best endeavours to capture as many as we can but if you feel that we are missing one that you think would be of interest please do let us know.

Active Disability Ireland Seminar

Active Disability Ireland, the national advocate organisation for sport and physical activity inclusion will, in association with Sport Ireland, present an exciting lineup of speakers in their first in-person event following the pandemic and also the first since the rebranding from CARA.

The event, supporting International Day of People with Disabilities, will also provide a launchpad for Active Disability Ireland’s first-ever youth forum, giving a voice to young people with disabilities to ask organisations to do all they can to ensure they have the choice and opportunities that they deserve.

National guests and key individuals in the sport, health, community, and disability sectors will take part in discussions about the importance of creating opportunities for people with disabilities to get involved in sport and physical activity, and also to understand the impact that small changes can have on making these opportunities a reality.

The seminar will celebrate the five-year anniversary of Active Disability Ireland’s Sports Inclusion Disability Charter, now with 2,000 signatories among Ireland’s sporting and leisure organisations.
