Civil society and sport

Civil society refers to the arena – separate from the state, the market and the individual household – in which people come together to take collective action around shared interests. Civil society includes networks, non-profit organisations and registered faith communities. The Government’s policy for civil society provides opportunities to create organisations, receive state aid and encourage people to become involved and conduct activities. Sports policy forms a specific part of the policy for civil society.
