The scheme will look to build the capacity of community facilities and amenities to increase access and provide more opportunities for physical activity across Cork City. These facilities and amenities are key to the delivery of physical activity opportunities and events for people of all ages and abilities across the city.

This scheme will be coordinated and administered by Cork Sports Partnership in consultation and partnership with Cork City Council and will support community-owned non-commercial facilities in the city to enhance the physical activity offering provided for the community to be active.
