Sinn Féin MLA Michelle Gildernew has welcomed the announcement of £250,000 to encourage greater participation and opportunities for women and girls to get involved in sport.

The Deputy Chair of the Communities Committee said:

“Women make a valuable contribution to sport in both a participation and coaching capacity and greater steps need to be taken to encourage their involvement.

“I welcome the decision by the sports minister to provide £250,000 investment to encourage women and girls to get involved in sport. 

“I would call for women and girls of all ages and abilities to get involved and take the opportunity to learn new skills and enjoy sport.”
