A £10 million Legacy 2014 Active Places Fund will help build or upgrade places within communities where local people can go to get active or take part in sport. 109 projects from 26 Local Authorities are already benefitting.
The SPL Trust has become the latest beneficiary of the £5 million fund, which is supporting projects that will help create a lasting legacy from the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
This award is the final tranche of the ‘home’ element of the programme which is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and Sport Relief.
Over £2.3m has already been distributed to projects across Scotland designed to help the vulnerable and those facing challenges in their lives.
