Welcome to Sport Lisburn and Castlereagh
Sport Lisburn & Castlereagh has been working since 1972 to ensure that the residents of the City of Lisburn and Castlereagh receive the Sports Development services and assistance provided by this local organisation.
Sport Lisburn & Castlereagh is funded by, and works closely with, Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council. Amongst its executive members, who are elected annually from representatives of local sporting groups within the Council area, are two Councillors nominated by Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council. Sport Lisburn & Castlereagh strives to assist a positive sporting experience, when possible, for all ages within the City. It also assists and acknowledges those Lisburn and Castlereagh residents who have made particular achievements in their chosen sport, whether it is at a local or international level. Members meet monthly in order to discuss matters of local sporting concern and interest.
The objectives of the Council shall be:
- To assist in the assessment of sporting needs in the City of Lisburn & Castlereagh and to advise on provision of activities to meet those needs.
- To provide a forum for local sports and to advise Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council of the collective opinions of local sports interest.
- To compile and maintain an up-to-date record of facilities and affiliated sporting organisations.
- To work with appropriate partners to increase participation in sport.
- To advise and support the effective use of existing and proposed sporting facilities.
- To promote sport in co-operation with other interested bodies.
To provide financial support to individual residents and affiliated sports clubs who meet Sport Lisburn & Castlereagh's criteria for financial assistance.
