StreetGames was invited by the Scottish Parliament’s Health and Sport Committee to give evidence as part of its inquiry into Community Sport last Tuesday (25th September).

The focus of the inquiry is an analysis of support for community sport, focusing on volunteering, health, clubs and facilities. StreetGames responded to a request for submissions and our Knowledge Manager, Ceris Anderson, joined representatives from the sports sector, including the Robertson Trust, Judy Murray and Liz McColgan, on the panel. Judy Murray, in particular, emphasised the most importance of coaches and volunteers in activating community sport.

The inquiry is part of StreetGames’ developing work, in partnership with the Youth Scotland, in Scotland and we provided evidence on our general learning across the UK relating to community sport in disadvantaged areas. We also referenced how we are applying this learning in providing more support to partners in Scotland.
