Changing Lives Through Sport and Physical Activity Overview

Please note that The Robertson Trust has published its new Giving Strategy. This sets out the priorities we will have when awarding funds through our open grants programme. The existing application form and guidelines can still be used until July 31st. In line with our existing procedures, we will aim to assess and present all applications received by this date to our September Board meeting. In the event that we are unable to do so, your application may be held until our November meeting. In such cases a member of staff will contact you and provide any assistance required to realign your application with the new Giving Strategy. Find out all you need to know here.

The power of sport and physical activity to bring about positive changes has long been recognised. Getting more people more active, more often, whether through participation in sporting activities, or through broader physical activities such as walking, cycling or gardening, is a key policy priority in Scotland. But what physical, psychological and social changes can being active bring about, and what approaches are most likely to bring about these changes?

Our two-page overview addresses these questions and provides links to further supporting resources for those delivering sport and physical activity.
