Comhairle nan Eilean Siar’s Education, Sport and Children’s Services committee has
recommended to offer vulnerable or "at risk" children free access to island sports
The proposal is set to be approved by the full comhairle next week.
A number of third
sector bodies, charitable organisations and council services approached the sport
and health section with the request for young people and their carers or mentors.
Committee chair Angus McCormack said: “Many of these young people would benefit from
increased physical activity opportunities, diversionary activities and improved social
networks and I am pleased that we have been able to support this proposal.”
