Paralympics Ireland to embark on a new three year strategic planning process

Paralympics Ireland is embarking on the exciting process of identifying a new three year strategic plan. Paralympics Ireland is the National Paralympic Committee for Ireland and is responsible for preparing and managing the Irish team at the Paralympic Games. Following from enormous success at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, work is in train for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.  This includes preparation for major championships in 2014 and 2015 across a range of sports to secure qualification for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

Consultations for the new strategic plan will commence in January and it is expected that the plan will be validated by the Board in March prior to a vote by members at the Paralympics Ireland AGM on 30 April.

Speaking at the launch of the strategic planning process, CEO Liam Harbison noted: “We have delivered on our last plan and are ready to draw up a new roadmap for success  over the coming years to build on the huge success and growth of Irish Paralympic sport up to London 2012.  The input of our member organisations, athletes, sports staff, volunteers, sponsors and other partners will be critical to this.”

Paralympics Ireland has selected Pinta to facilitate this exercise.  Pinta is an expert consulting team with extensive experience in strategic planning in the not for profit and sports sectors and has worked extensively with the GAA in particular. Reporting to a Paralympics Ireland steering group, Pinta will facilitate consultations and distil all of the inputs into a concise strategy that will allow Paralympics Ireland to reach its future potential as an organisation.

Harbison concluded: “I’m looking forward to working together with the Pinta team and with all those participating in the process in developing a new and exciting future for Paralympics Ireland.”
