Clubs, communities and leisure trusts across Scotland have received more than £1.25m in investment from sportscotland’s Sport Facilities Fund.
Projects from Dumfries and Galloway to the Highlands will benefit from the funding, which is made possible thanks to National Lottery players.
In total, £1,264,750 will be shared between 15 projects across Scotland for clubs and communities, schools and education establishments, or performance sport environments.
Priority was given to projects with a focus on increasing participation in sport and physical activity amongst young people, women and girls, disabled people, as well as deprived or rural communities.
"This latest investment from sportscotland’s Sport Facilities Fund will make a real difference to people across Scotland. This fund supports projects that seek to create or improve the places where people take part in sport and physical activity. This will enable communities to provide more opportunities for participation by removing barriers and increasing access to sport for all,” says Mairi Gougeon, Minister for Public Health and Sport.
Projects can apply to sportscotland’s Sport Facilities Fund for awards of up to £100,000 for capital projects designed to create or improve the places where people take part in sport and physical activity.
