On Wednesday 12th December 2018 the Scottish Government released their Draft 2019-20 Budget.

Current headline figures and statements relating to sport:

  • Total Health & Sport Budget = £14.3 billion (increase of £724m)
  • sportscotland funding = £32.7 million (increase of £0.9m)
  • Active, Healthy Lives = £13.4m (increase of £0.6m)

Obviously this is the starting point for Parliamentary consideration of the Draft Budget. The SSA will continue to monitor, work with sportscotland and keep our members updated as this progresses and as further information becomes available.

The full draft budget is available as a PDF via the button below, Health & Sport is chapter 5
