CANI were awarded the Preliminary level of the Equality Standard in Sport by Sport NI on the 22nd April.
CANI were one of two governing bodies to achieve this level, there were also six who achieved the Foundation level. Sport NI commented that CANI’s submission was a model case and recognised the work undertaken by Angela and CANI to achieve this standard.
Reflecting on the achievement of the eight sporting organisations, Andrew Sloan, Sport NI Director of Sports Management Services, commented:
“Sport Northern Ireland is committed to ensuring that sport is open to and enjoyed by all sections of our community. Through the Equality Standard, we are able to support and acknowledge the work of local sporting organisations promoting equality within their internal structures and processes.
“The actions and initiatives which they have developed and implemented reflect a collective determination to encourage participation in sport by everyone, and Sport NI is delighted to present awards to them in recognition of their efforts.”
