Active Cork Communities

Cork Sports Partnership as part of its current strategy ‘Active Cork’ has a focus to empower, inspire and influence communities to be physically active. The active communities’ team work with a wide and diverse range of groups across Cork to increase and promote physical activity in Cork. As part of the National Physical Activity Plan and Sports Policy for Ireland we are influenced and work in collaboration to make Cork one of the most vibrant and physically active places in Ireland. 

For 2021 the Cork Sports Partnership is enhancing its support for community groups and facilities to further empower, inspire and acknowledge their efforts in making the communities they live in Active Communities with the following three initiatives.  

Active Communities Initiative

Cork Active Communities is an initiative to support local agencies, community groups and volunteers to develop and foster a culture of promoting sport and physical activity for their local community. The initiative is coordinated by Cork Sports Partnership with the support of Sport Ireland, Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, and several other local organisations.

Active Community Awards

The Cork Active Communities Awards is a joint initiative between Cork Sports Partnership, Cork County Council, Cork City Council, and Healthy Ireland. New for 2021, the Cork Sports Partnership recognises the need to acknowledge the many community Groups, organisations and individuals that commit to supporting that local Active Community ethos. With the support of Healthy Ireland and several local partners we look forward to celebrating the efforts of these volunteer groups and individuals across the many communities in Cork.
