New community fund to make Scotland "more inclusive and healthier"

By Tom Walker    17 Jul 2018
The funding will offer two-year grants ranging from £30,000 to £70,000 for any project or partnerships which meet key criteria

Community-based sport and physical activity projects in Scotland are in line for a cash investment thanks to a new programme aimed at changing lives and creating a more inclusive and healthier nation.

Sports projects and programmes can now apply for grants from The Changing Lives Through Sport and Physical Activity (CLTSPA), which will look to deliver positive change in communities across the country.

“This programme will provide vital support and funding and is a great example of organisations working in partnership," said Scottish sports minister Aileen Campbell.

"The barriers to taking part in sport and physical activity are complex and varied, and through programmes like this we can help people overcome these issues and enjoy the clear benefits that sport and physical activity bring.

"I am keen, through this programme, to see both sporting and non-sporting organisations use sport and physical activity to get more people taking part.”

The fund is a partnership between the Scottish Government, sportscotland, the Robertson Trust and Spirit of 2012.

The funding will offer two-year grants ranging from £30,000 to £70,000 for any project or partnerships which meet key criteria and deliver on four themes – inclusive sport; sport for skills; sport for communities; and sport as a vehicle for health and wellbeing.

“The positive power of sport and physical activity can be seen every day in communities across the country thanks to the fantastic work of community sport hubs, clubs and the wider sporting system," said Stewart Harris, sportscotland chief executive.

"It is clear from this work that sport and physical activity is having a significant impact on the lives of those taking part. But it is not just about participation, it is also about improving health and wellbeing and increasing wider opportunities, and we are determined to build on that.

"This fund and the wider Changing Lives Through Sport and Physical Activity programme is an important step on that journey, as we strive to build a more inclusive and healthier nation.”
