The GAA would not exist without the communities we represent and serve. Every club in the Association already supports the development of its communities in a broad variety of ways, whether that's offering young people the chance to better themselves through sport or by supporting local charities through fundraising events and functions. The programmes outlined in this section aim to highlight how clubs can maximise their positive influence, be that by becoming more age-friendly in engaging older members, supporting diversity and inclusion by encouraging individuals from all backgrounds, religions, sexual orientation and populations or supporting the engagement of people with additional needs to become involved in GAA activities.
