New Commonwealth Games Legacy Spotlight Project - LEAP Sports

Sports SCotland CEO Stewart Harris addresses LEAP Sport eventIt is now just 2 years to go until the Commonwealth Games come to Glasgow!

As part of the Commonwealth Games Legacy Programme, SCDC has been working with community organisations across Scotland to support them to use the Games as a catalyst for building on their work to develop activities and projects that involve local people, increase local community action and support the achievement of better health and social outcomes.

Our latest spotlight project features LEAP Sports, an organisation championing equality and inclusion for all within sports and outdoor activity across Scotland.  As part of the Legacy for Communities programme, SCDC has supported LEAP Sports to engage with national LGBT/sports agencies and local LGBT sports clubs to take their work forward and to challenge the negative attitudes that exist within mainstream sports and sporting competitions that perpetuate negative stereotypes of LGBT people.  Click here to read the full spotlight article.
