I would like to thank Cara for conducting Disability Awareness Training for the Sport Ireland Institute Team in accordance with Sport Ireland’s new Disability Policy.  We provide a range of high performance support services to athletes, both able-bodied and those with impairments, whom aspire to representing Ireland at the Olympic and Paralympic Games.  It is imperative that our team provide equity of support to the athletes with impairments and we ensure that the Institute building is barrier free and easily accessible.  The training provided reinforces our commitment to support the Paralympic athletes and to ensure we optimise the quality of services we provide to all athletes.
