The Sports Capital Programme aims to foster an integrated and planned approach to developing sports and physical recreation facilities throughout the country. In particular, its objectives are to:
- assist voluntary and community organisations, national governing bodies (NGBs) of sport, local authorities and Education and Training Boards and schools to develop high quality, accessible, safe, well-designed, sustainable facilities in appropriate locations and to provide appropriate equipment to help maximise participation in sport and physical recreation
- prioritise the needs of disadvantaged areas and groups (such as people with disabilities) in the provision of sports facilities
- encourage the sharing of sports facilities by clubs, community organisations and national governing bodies of sport.

Sports Capital Programme Guide to Accessible Gym Equipment
It is a requirement of the SCP that all gyms funded by the Programme have accessible gym equipment. The Department has prepared a guide which sets out the requirements for grantees who have been allocated funding towards gym equipment. For more information, Cara - Sport Inclusion Ireland have created resource factsheets on how to make your sports facilities, equipment and activities more accessible to people with disabilities (this link is to an external website and the information and views are not those of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport).
