sportscotland - Direct club investment


This programme is focused on strengthening club sport by investing in sport clubs that can significantly deliver on: growth in club membership and/or growth in clubs which provide the correct environment to develop athletes to performance levels.

It will prioritise clubs who explicitly target: providing opportunities for those from disadvantaged areas to get involved in sport and physical activity; engaging with women and girls, people with a disability and young people to get them involved in sport and physical activity; increasing the number and quality of coaches and deliverers from SIMD areas working with clubs in SIMD areas. It offers investment to support club development over a period of 2-4 years, giving the club time to embed significant developmental change.
