A new research report into the work of Sportscotland has found that participation programmes supported by the agency are having "a life-changing effect" on those who are taking part.

The independent research praised several of Sportscotland's programmes – including Active Schools which, according to the study, has made 98 per cent of children and young people feel healthier.

The findings follow a separate report, which showed that participation levels on national programmes in Scotland are at a record high.

“In recent years we have seen a significant increase in sports participation thanks to national programmes across the country including Active Schools and our support for local clubs and community sport hubs," said sportscotland chief executive Stewart Harris.

"Our work in these areas is changing lives, as can be seen from the findings of this research.

"We are creating more and better opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to take part in sport thanks to these programmes and along with our partners, including local authorities, leisure trusts, Scottish Governing Bodies, clubs and schools, we are determined to build on that.”
