Scottish Sports Futures

Changing Lives Through Sport

Scottish Sports Futures use the power of sport and physical activity to engage with vulnerable and disadvantaged young people and families in Scotland and empower them to be confident, healthy, and happy.

We do this using our proven and recognised Sport for Change model and its range of person-centred, youth-led programmes that provide positive experiences, inspiring role models, engaging social education, training, and youth volunteering opportunities.


Developing People

Developing people is at the heart of everything we do. Through the power of sport and physical activity we improve confidence, resilience, skills, and aspirations.

Improving Health & Wellbeing

We recognise and harness the role sport and physical activity has to play in supporting positive mental and physical wellbeing.

Strengthening Communities

Our programmes connect young people to their local communities and support and empower them to become inspiring role models to their peers.

Our Impact

We seek to encourage a positive change in young people’s attitudes and behaviour that enables them to recognise and fulfil their potential, and to make a valuable contribution to their peers and their community. In the past three years, SSF have supported young people to:

"One of the biggest things SSF has done for me is all the experiences and they've helped me land my dream job. If it wasn't for SSF I wouldn't have been able to be confident enough to kind of step forward to get to that interview."
