Sport For Life

Welcome to Sport For Life.

It's a new corporate strategy from sportscotland outlining the vision for an active Scotland where everyone benefits from sport.

Sport For Life sets out the assets available to Scottish sport and the approach we can take, working with partners, to help everyone benefit from sport - even people who don't take part in it.


Our mission 

To help the people of Scotland get the most from the sporting system.

  • Making an impact together
  • Making sport more accessible
  • Progressing to your level
  • Contributing to an active Scotland
  • Celebrating the benefits of sport

Our assets 

From talented people to fantastic facilities and an exceptional natural environment, Scotland’s assets enable people to get active and involved in sport.

Our approach 

To help us deliver the many benefits of sport to everyone in Scotland, we’re guided by six key principles.

  • Inclusive
  • Accountable
  • Responsive
  • Person-centred
  • Collaborative
  • World class

Our commitment to inclusion underpins everything we do.

Launch day 

Sport For Life was launched at a national networking event at Dunblane on 1 May, 2019. Here is how delegates and other partners reacted on Twitter.
