Defibrillators for Sport Initiative

The Department for Communities and Sport Northern Ireland have launched a new initiative to provide life-saving defibrillators to sports clubs.

The intended purpose is to increase the number of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) devices available in community settings. This initiative supports the Department of Health’s Community Resuscitation Strategy and therefore strengthens the ‘Chain of Survival’ link in both rural and urban areas.


Almost 300 AED devices will be distributed amongst sports clubs. With these additional devices, it is envisaged that Public Access Defibrillation will increase, supporting the Community Resuscitation Strategy whilst widening and strengthening the ‘chain of survival’.
