What is a community sport hub?

Active communities where everyone benefits from sport & physical activity.

A Community Sport Hub (CSH) is a collective of local sports clubs & other community organisations that come together to improve the contribution that sport & physical activity has on a community.

The Community Sport Hub approach is to support and empower local people to improve sport & physical activity in communities across Scotland. It starts with understanding the needs within a community and then collaborating to facilitate and deliver activities and interventions.

Across Scotland, a network of Community Sport Hub Officers are on hand to work with local leaders. They provide support to help understand barriers and develop inclusive approaches that ensure everyone can get active. They help establish partnerships, and develop plans and resources to build capacity and capability in community organisations.

Community sport hub network


The community sport hub network is made up of community sport hubs, and member sport clubs and organisations from across the country. 

We aspire to develop Community Sport Hubs across all 32 local authorities to contribute to an active Scotland where everyone benefits from sport.
