Enhancing sport and physical activity provision within South-West Edinburgh


Established in April 2013, South-West Edinburgh Community Sport Hub is part of a national project to raise the capacity of sport in Scotland. Community Sport Hubs, sportscotland’s contribution to the Scottish Government’s 2014 legacy plan, aim to increase the number of people of all ages participating in sport and physical activity in local communities across Scotland.

The nucleus of the hub will be based at Heriot-Watt University with the surrounding geographical areas included in the Hub's remit, such as Balerno, Currie, Juniper Green, Wester Hailes, Sighthill and Ratho.

Strategic Plan 2017-18

The Hub's Strategic Plan for 2017-18 was recently finalised. The Hub aims to be "at the heart of South-West Edinburgh communities, developing a connected and accessible micro-sport system." This will be achieved through the following key priorities:

  • Enhancing Sport - Collectively enhance the provision of sport and physical activity within the South-West of Edinburgh.
  • Enhancing People - Actively engage and develop people to enhance the sport provision in the South-West of Edinburgh.
  • Effective Promotions - Ensure opportunities to participate and deliver sport within the locality and beyond is well marketed and communicated.
  • Effective Partnerships - Develop structures and partnerships within the Hub that have a positive impact on the provision of sport and physical activity in South-West of Edinburgh.
