Sport Strategy and Policy
The East Ayrshire Community Plan is the document which most influences the work of Sports Development.
Focussing on the key themes of Improving Community Safety and Improving Health, we are committed to working with Community Planning Partners to make sure that our services are meaningful and have a positive impact on the local community.
Reaching Higher is the Scottish Government's Strategy for Scottish Sport, and we are pleased that this document reflects so much of the work we are already committed to carrying out in East Ayrshire. We are also looking forward to planning any new Sports Development Services around the key recommendations of this strategy to make sure that East Ayrshire stays up to date with national priorities.
In planning and developing the work of the Sports Development Team, we are committed to ensuring that the services offered are relevant within a wider community context. We, therefore, consider national priorities that are outwith the realms of the traditional sporting framework. This includes National Strategies in relation to youth crime and antisocial behaviour as well considering local need as identified through colleagues in all our partner agencies.
