The Active Community Awards were established by Cork Sports Partnership under its Active Cork Communities Initiative to honour, recognise and celebrate the individuals and groups in our local Cork communities that go above and beyond in their efforts to promote community sport and physical activity opportunities, while equally promoting positive health and wellbeing for all.

This is the first year of the awards, which seek to highlight the important role that community groups, organisations, and individuals play in promoting local community health and wellbeing through physical activity.  This last year has been particularly challenging but communities have come up with unique and innovative ways to keep people engaged in physical activity and sport, supporting them to look after their physical and mental health.

Through the Cork Healthy Ireland fund with the support of local partners, Cork County Council and Cork City Council, we can now begin to recognise these efforts across the many communities in Cork with our Active Community Awards 2021.

Nominations are welcome across the following four categories:

  1. Active Community Group: This award is to acknowledge a volunteer group/team of people working in the development and/or promotion of locally-led physical activity and community sports programmes.
  2. Active Community Campaign: This award is to acknowledge and recognise community campaigns, events, or initiatives that encourage people to be active.
  3. Active Community Champion: This award is to acknowledge an individual’s work in the development and/or promotion of locally-led physical activity and community sports programmes.
  4. Active Community Inclusion: This award is to acknowledge groups/organisations that provide a leading role in the area of inclusion in their communities.

Cork Sports Partnership is delighted to announce the launch of these awards and would encourage communities across Cork to nominate individuals, groups, and organisations they feel are worthy receipts for 2021.
