SSF was established in 2000 and over the last 16 years has created a successful and well respected “Sport for Change” model that supports more than 10,000 young people annually across Scotland from early interventions right through to training and employment.
“Use the power of sport to inspire young people to make positive lifestyle choices”
Build the foundation for healthy lifestyles – early intervention and education tackled in a unique and engaging way, to maximise the power of sport and sporting role models. Provide tools to sustain impact and embed learning.
Provide a network of support to enable young people to take advantage of opportunities available to them - establish accessible local activity, ensure activities are young person led and meaningful, promote volunteering and provide access to training. Create an environment that is safe, engaging and welcoming.
Build capacity through partnerships – further develop relationships both at strategic and delivery levels, provide tailored pathways to support young people on their journeys to positive destinations, offer alternative routes to skills development and bring youth and sports sectors closer together.
