Clare Older Adults Physical Activity Programme is Life Changing

Download Full Report Here

Clare Local Sports Partnership has recently evaluated its programme of work with older adults and the results have shown that their work is Life Changing for the participants. Speaking on the success of the programme, Chairperson of the Sports Partnership, Cllr. Tom Mc Namara said that:

We have known from the start that this programme was having a positive impact on the daily lives of the participants, but the results have really exceeded our expectations. Since 2014, we have established 13 new groups across the county with 272 people activity registered. Nearly 91% of all participants have told us that their lives have been positively impacted because of the programme as they now have greater mobility, less pain and less medication.’ 

Study shows economic boost from increased participation in sport

A new study into public participation in sport and exercise, the first of its kind ever undertaken in Ireland, has found that the Clare economy could benefit from an annual injection of 1 million euro as a result of just 5% of the population taking up a new exercise or sport activity.

A Sports Impact Review undertaken by W2 Consulting on behalf of Clare Local Sports Partnership (CLSP) examined teenage participation in sport through the GOYA programme and the Youth Basketball initiative, as well as female participation in sport through the Meet & Train programme and Women on Wheels cycling initiative.
