October 31, 2019
Basketball Ireland has signed up to the CARA Sports Inclusion Disability Charter.
This is a major step forward for Basketball Ireland in terms of disability sport as the commitment means that BI will work with CARA in developing its policies around addressing the five areas of the CARA Charter which are outlined below:
Be open to and understanding of all people with disabilities.
Access training for BI staff/volunteers to facilitate the inclusion of people with disabilities.
Develop and deliver inclusive activities.
Review our facility/venues/equipment to make the organisation more accessible.
Promote the inclusive nature of our activities, in a variety of formats.
BI encourages all clubs throughout the country to commit to the CARA charter and work on addressing the five areas of the charter within their own clubs to make basketball a more inclusive sport for all.
