Indigenous community sport and recreation program (ICSRP)

 

Overview

The Indigenous community sport and recreation program (ICSRP) is an initiative of the Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) in Queensland (Qld). The primary focus of the program is to promote Indigenous engagement in community sport and recreation activities. In addition, programs in most communities will promote social and emotional well-being.

The program is currently active in 38 communities, in urban, regional and remote areas throughout the state, and employs 46 staff. The activities and events are developed in response to community needs as identified by a local sport and recreation reference group; ensuring that the program is relevant and specific to each community, and appropriate for all age groups.

A key component of the ICSRP is the maintenance of a full time resident Indigenous Community Sport and Recreation Officer (ICSRO) in each community that the program services; setting it apart from the 'fly-in, fly-out' model that is prevalent in remote community service delivery.

This program is funded by the Qld Goverment Department of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing.
