The Irish Sports Council acts as a resource for the National Governing (Bodies of Sport NGBs). One of the main priorities of the Irish Sports Council is to strengthen and develop capabilities of the NGBs of Ireland. The NGB Unit is an advisory Unit for Governing Bodies in areas of governance, change management, strategic planning and procedural issues as well as compliance. This is facilitated through regular liaison meetings with updates from Governing Bodies and advice and support provided by the Unit. National Governing Bodies of sport (NGBs) are identified in A New Era for Sport as key delivery agencies for the Council's strategic priorities. The Council works in partnership with NGBs to make them more effective in developing their sport and servicing the needs of their members. With their member clubs and affiliates, NGBs organise and administer most of the organised sport in Ireland; they train and deploy coaches; they organise representative level sport; and they provide sporting opportunities and pathways leading from local sport to national and international competition. The objective of the ISC's Participation Strategy is to get more people active in sport and contribute to the goal of building a healthier society. Participation initiatives developed to support this objective include: - Local Sports Partnerships - Sport for Older People (Go for Life) - Recreational Sport Programme - The Code of Ethics & Good Practice for Children's Sport - Bunt�s - Way marked Ways / National Trails Office - National Governing Bodies of Sport - Youth Field Sports - Women in Sport - National Coaching and Training Centre / Coaching Ireland - Active Leadership - Sports Inclusion Development Officers
