SUMMARY:

The potential of sport as a tool for social inclusion and integration has been tested and acknowledged, but access to sports facilities for refugees remains limited. Local sports organisations struggle to adapt existing activities and facilities and to create suitable engagement programmes due to a lack of knowledge of refugee needs and expectations. INSPIRES aims at equipping refugees, key actors in football (coaches, referees, administrators in clubs), and CSOs with the skills and knowledge required to support the integration and social inclusion of female refugees in the EU. To meet the general and specific objectives a Needs Based and Demand Driven Approach will be applied throughout the project.
