Over the course of the financial year ending 31 March 2018 our reserves have increased marginally by c£5k. The organisation continues to maintain a strong reserve position, in line with our policy direction, and will continue to invest in opportunities to secure future funding streams to ensure that the sustainability of the organisation is maintained.

Investment funding in the last financial year was received from a range of sources including sportscotland and the Scottish Government alongside membership subscriptions, our new partnership with Deloitte and patronages from Traveleads and Howdens. We are extremely grateful to our members and partners for all their support.
