Inactivity is Scotland’s biggest health challenge. Research shows that sport can play a significant part in addressing that crisis. OSS supports the Scottish Government’s Active Outcomes Framework, which is committed to making Scotland more active, and we believe a greater understanding of how we grow and widen access to sport for everyone in every part of Scotland is central to effecting the culture change required to restore Scotland’s health.

Research & OSS

As Scotland’s first community sport ‘think tank’, we are committed to producing high-quality research, analysis and insight, through commissioning directly by OSS and working closely with all of Scotland’s universities and academic sector, and the wider sport industry.
