‘Scottish Sports Association’ Campaign Response

The SNP want a Scotland where everyone can benefit from investment in sport and physical activity. 

Therefore, a re-elected SNP Government will double investment in sport and active living to £100 million by the end of this parliament to help Scotland get more active. 

We will task SportScotland to work with organisations and individuals across Scotland to devise a new national activity plan. Its focus will be to break down the barriers, financial or otherwise, that keep too many people from leading active lives. A priority will be to support the participation of more women and girls. 

We will review our investment in sport, including sponsorship, to ensure it benefits men and women equally and we will work with public broadcasters in Scotland to support them to significantly increase the amount of women’s sport shown on Scottish screens, so that we can inspire girls and boys to take part in sports.
