Scottish Sports Futures are delighted to announce the winners of our Awards Night 2020, which took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow on Friday 28th February 2020, supported once again by title sponsors sportscotland.
Scottish Sports Futures (SSF) is a charity Changing Lives Through Sport and over the last 20 years we have been working with young people and communities that are vulnerable or at risk. Our local and national programmes provide tailored pathways to positive destinations, supporting young people to fulfil their potential and widening opportunities for all.
Without the support of partners, sponsors and funders, SSF would not be able to reach and impact the young people who live in communities facing disadvantage. The annual awards night is an emotional and inspirational reminder of what can be achieved through partnership working, putting young people at the heart of everything we do.
Please see details of our amazing finalists below. All photos of the night can be accessed here.
