Meath Local Sports Partnership is delighted to announce an exciting new initiative “Link 2B Active”.
This initiative seeks to create an opportunity for people in receipt of social welfare benefits to access sports facilities or clubs at a reduced rate and encourages them to participate in recreational activities.
Everyone knows the importance of being active and staying active to enhance one’s physical and mental well being. Often there are barriers to participation in sport and physical activity. One barrier this
programme hopes to address is the financial cost involved in participating.
Meath Local Sports Partnership will be liaising with facility providers in Meath to seek reduced rates for social welfare recipients. This programme is very much a three way partnership between the facility provider, the recipient and ourselves.
Please find a list below of the offers available from clubs and facilities in county Meath.
If you are interested in any of these offers please contact the number provided for each club/facility to avail of the offer.
If you are interested in participating in this course as a facility provider, please contact Ruairi Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 046-9067337.
