As set out in our 2020-2024 Strategy, we are expanding on the nature and unique structure of sports councils. Scottish ClubSport is committed to growing the foundations put in place over the last 40 years by SALSC. The evolution of a national and local structure relevant to the sporting landscape of today will see sports councils embrace new opportunities and a modernised clubsport framework, engage knowledge and empower sports and non-sporting networks to work together at a local level.
Scottish ClubSport has identified four priority areas. These are:
We thank our partners for their ongoing guidance and commitment to help us provide National Support for Local Sport.
sportscotland is the national agency for sport in Scotland. Their vision is an active Scotland where everyone benefits from sport. Scottish ClubSport is a national partner of sportscotland and we support their six key principles; Inclusive, Accountable, Responsive, Person centred, Collaborative, World class.
As the national agency for sport their role is to make sure sport plays its part in a thriving Scotland. They do this by influencing, informing and investing in the organisations and people who deliver sport and physical activity.
They have an important part to play alongside other agencies to deliver an active Scotland where more people are more active more often. An active Scotland is one where people are encouraged to participate, progress and achieve in sport. At the same time people become more active – and stay active.

Support in Mind Scotland`s aim is to improve the quality of life for anyone whose mental health problems or mental illness has a serious impact on their life and on the lives of others, including family members, friends and supporters.
They believe that every individual has the right to be valued, and to share in the opportunities, enjoyment, challenges, responsibilities and choices of everyday life and that those who experience mental illness, and mental health problems, their families and carers and friends, are entitled to quality support in the community or in hospital, or in their own homes as they choose.
At Scottish ClubSport, we believe that by partnering with Support in Mind Scotland, we will be able to raise awareness of mental health and physical health whilst providing our local sports councils, community and sport clubs and volunteers with the necessary knowledge and resources to support their local members and clubs during this challenging time.

Scottish ClubSport are a proud member of the LGBTI Sports Group. The National LGBTI Sports Group is a national group which exists to have a strategic overview of matters of LGBTI equality within sport in Scotland. It was established in 2013 as one of the recommendations from the Out for Sport report.
The National Group recognise that LGBTI people experience particular issues that prevent their equal access and participation in sport; and that LGBTI-phobia in sport causes significant barriers and inequality in sport. It is therefore committed to full inclusion of LGBTI people in sport and physical activity and to tackling LGBTI-phobia within sport.
The terms of reference for the group can be found here. The group is Chaired by LEAP Sports and membership of the group consists of strategic partners, umbrella bodies, national LGBTI organisations and sports governing body representatives.
