sportscotland wants to better understand the contribution it makes to building an Active Scotland. We are supporting sportscotland to run a major national survey of sports club members. This will inform sportscotland’s future work with clubs and communities.
This is a reminder about the email we sent you in December to ask for your help in encouraging club members to complete the survey below.
There will be a prize draw of all responses, run by us (Research Scotland), and one club will win £1,000 of sports equipment.
The survey is available online here: www.researchscotland.org/sportclubs or through our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/researchsco, or Twitter – @researchsco. Continue reading sportscotland work in clubs and communities research
