Waterford Sports Partnership (WSP) was established in 2002 by the Irish Sports Council as part of the Local Sports Partnership initiative. Our aim is to increase participation in sport and physical activity in County Waterford with a particular focus on young people, older adults, people with a disability, women and teenage girls and disadvantaged groups. WSP is established as a company limited by guarantee, governed by a Board of Directors from statutory, local development, community, voluntary and sport organisations across Waterford. A Co-ordinator, four Development Officers, a Communications Officer and an Officer Administrator are employed to carry out the work from two office bases in Dungarvan and Waterford City.
Our three main functions are the provision of information and support, facilitation of education and training opportunities and supporting the development and implementation of programmes and events that encourage greater participation.
