Sport 21: 2003-2007. The National Strategy for Sport

E-mail Print

Sport 21 has been endorsed by the Scottish Executive and the Scottish Parliament. It has been adopted in various policy statements made by the Scottish Executive and has influenced recent spending decisions in the Scottish Budget. Sport 21 is regularly referred to in the Scottish Parliament during debates. It also shapes the thinking of development plans for sport in local authorities and national governing bodies of sport.

Its three visions - see below - were adopted in the reform of sportscotland’s structure. However, its targets were designed for delivery by March 2003 and therefore the strategy needed to be updated to build on the achievements witnessed since 1998. The update aligns Sport 21 with the Scottish Parliament electoral cycle, to help ensure that sport continues to contribute to Scotland’s wider policy agenda.
