Sport NI value the views and opinions from everyone across Northern Ireland; sport plays a huge role in the lives of many, and has especially played a crucial role in communities across Northern Ireland during these disruptive and uncertain times with Covid-19. In this wave of consultation sessions, it’s time for the public to hear and voice their opinions on the Sport NI Draft Corporate Plan for 2020 to 2025.
