Inactivity is Scotland’s biggest health challenge. Research shows that sport can play a significant part in addressing that crisis at all age levels, and it is doing so across Europe. OSS' strong networks of stakeholders and academics work together to support the Scottish Government’s drive to create a healthier, more active nation, and educate on how we grow and widen access to all forms of sport activity - for everyone in every part of Scotland - to achieve that.

OSS Research Papers Library

This library aims to gather together research papers on all forms of sport participation, community sport delivery and related material. If you have a report or paper which is relevant, please get in touch and we will add it to the library.
