Signatory of Scotland's Mental Health Charter for Physical Activity & Sport


Scotland’s Mental Health Charter for Physical Activity and Sport aims to empower physical activity and sport communities to improve equality and reduce discrimination, ensuring mental health and wellbeing is not a barrier to engaging, participating and achieving in physical activity and sport.


The SCF will help achieve this by:

  • Actively promoting inclusive practice and ensuring a positive and welcoming environment for all.

  • Developing inclusive policies and practices informed by the inclusion of mental health and wellbeing in strategic planning.

  • Actively encouraging participation and promoting messages focusing on the benefits of physical activity on mental health and wellbeing.

  • Participating in Scotland’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Charter Network supporting meaningful collaboration, sharing resources and best practice.

  • Routinely reviewing performance and identifying ways to improve and take positive action in relation to mental health and wellbeing.
