sportscotland is the national agency for sport. We are the lead agency for the development of sport and we have a clear focus on developing and supporting a world class sporting system in Scotland. This section contains information about our organisation and its structure.
We are a non-departmental public body, responsible through ministers to the Scottish Parliament. We are also a National Lottery Fund distributor and we are governed by National Lottery distribution rules. We invest Scottish Government and National Lottery resources to develop a world class sporting system in Scotland. We continually strive to ensure these resources are invested wisely so as to achieve best value and maximum impact.
sportscotland has three directorates: sports development, high performance and corporate services. We deliver from bases across Scotland, including our headquarters in Glasgow, the sportscotland institute of sport in Stirling and our regional bases in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Falkirk and Inverness.
The sportscotland Trust Company operates three national training centres, Glenmore Lodge, Inverclyde, and Cumbrae. These centres provide quality, affordable and appropriate residential and sporting facilities for people to develop in sport.
