What is EBA 2020

Every Body Active 2020 is a four year lottery funded programme aimed at getting people more active more often through sport and physical activity in Northern Ireland.

Sport Northern Ireland has invested £6.2 million in the 11 District Councils across Northern Ireland to help increase quality opportunities for targeted groups to increase participation in sport and physical activities across key life-course transitions (for example children moving from primary school to post-primary, young people leaving education, having a family, or retiring from work).

Who is EBA for?

EBA will be targeting increases in participation among traditionally underrepresented groups which include:

  • Women and girls (specifically aged 14-25)
  • People with a disability; and
  • Those living in areas of greatest social need (specifically people living within the top 25% of wards designated by NI Multiple Deprivation Measure Index 2010)
