Project title: Working across community, voluntary and statutory agencies to provide opportunities for young people to become physically active: the story in Limerick Regeneration Areas

The research aims to identify and map the physical activity and sporting initiatives and programmes that are available to young people in the Limerick Regeneration Areas, collecting base-line data that will assess the extent to which they are working towards their stated objectives. The research will also examine the effectiveness of particular initiatives and programmes in accommodating young people’s involvement in physical activity and the extent to which young people are encouraged to maintain an involvement in physical activity and sport through such initiatives and programmes. This will provide a sense of who is engaging in physical activities, the issues and challenges faced by the key stakeholders, and recommendations on best practice.

The successful candidate will work in partnership with the relevant local community, voluntary and statutory agency providers. Experience of working with young people in community, voluntary and / or statutory setting is essential as is a qualification relevant to physical education, health, sport or a related discipline. An ability to communicate in a clear, concise manner and work as part of a team is essential. An ability to work with a wide range of people from diverse backgrounds and relate to and engage with young people is also essential.
