Commenting on the launch of the Handbook, FAI President Tony Fitzgerald said “I gladly welcome the publication of the Handbook on Volunteering of Migrants in Sport Clubs and Organisations. I am pleased that the Football Association of Ireland’s via our Intercultural Football Programme could be involved in this important project to develop a handbook resource, amongst other actions from the project. I am assured that the handbook will act as a useful guide for clubs seeking to recruit potential volunteers, whilst also providing a guide on volunteering for people from diverse backgrounds interested to volunteer their time in sports”.
The ESPIN handbook has been developed on one hand as a guide for potential volunteers in sport with a migrant background and on the other hand for local clubs and sport organizations interested in involving people from diverse background. The overall vision of the project the project “European Sport Inclusion Network (ESPIN)- Promoting Equal Opportunities of Migrants and Minorities through Volunteering in Sport” is to increase sports participation of disadvantaged groups by promoting equal access to organized sport. A key objective is to increase volunteering of migrants and minorities.
