The collaboration project between the three bodies hopes to reach 17,000 people of differing backgrounds, particularly across the political divide, with the aim of changing perceptions and building sustained relationships.
Research has shown that sport delivers its most positive impacts on behaviour when it incorporates integrated mentoring, training, volunteering and work experience programmes.
Based on this research the project partners have designed a range of activities based on education, training, empowerment and leadership directed to volunteers and clubs.
The project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB)
