Clare clubs, organisations and schools making a difference and increasing opportunities for people with disabilities in Sport and Physical Activity are being urged to consider applying for the National Inclusion Awards 2016.
The CARA National Inclusion Awards, established in 2012 recognises organisations and people who contribute to the provision of people with disabilities in sport and physical activity throughout Ireland.
Cara Doherty, CARA Managing Director feels it is important to recognise the people working behind the scenes. “There are so many people in so many settings making a concerted effort to include people with disabilities in sport and physical activity that it is only right that CARA rewards and highlights the great work that is being done. We are especially happy to include a category for third level colleges for the first time this year”.
