RFT: Development of guidance and supports for the sport sector regarding transgender and non-binary inclusion in sport and physical activity
Sport Ireland is currently requesting tenders for the development of guidance and supports for the sport sector regarding transgender and non-binary inclusion in sport and physical activity.
One of the core values of the National Sports Policy 2018 – 2027 is the promotion of inclusion: “Sport must be welcoming and inclusive, offering appropriate opportunities for participation and improvement to all. We will promote inclusion to deliver our desired outcomes with a focus on addressing social, disability, gender, ethnic and other gradients.”
Action 6 of the National Sports Policy tasks Sport Ireland to: “develop initiatives with the NGBs, LSPs, schools, third level institutions, the CARA Centre and other relevant parties to address participation in sport among adolescents and young adults, particularly females, those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, persons with a disability, the LGBTI+ community, the Traveller community and other ethnic minorities. Team and individual-based NGBs will be encouraged to develop initiatives which promote wider participation across their respective codes. Schools and sports clubs will be encouraged to foster better links to make more efficient use of their facilities.”
Sport Ireland recently published its first policy on Diversity and Inclusion in Sport which expresses its vision for a sport sector that celebrates diversity, promotes inclusion, and is pro-active in providing opportunities for lifelong participation for everyone. In keeping with our commitment to inclusion, Sport Ireland is seeking to develop guidance and supports for the sport sector regarding transgender and non-binary inclusion in sport and physical activity.
The RFT process is being conducted through eTenders. Further information is available here: Public RFT - Developing Guidance & Supports regarding Transgender and Non-binary inclusion in Sport & Physical Activity (eu-supply.com)
