The Athletics Trust Scotland (ATS) operates for the benefit of the public as a non-profit distributing charity.

The principal objectives of ATS are the advancement of public participation in athletics as a sport by:

  • Providing support to those in the sport who are in need, for reasons of age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage.
  • Promoting and encouraging individuals towards accreditation for coaching and the role of competition officials.
  • Providing new opportunities for more people to participate in athletics and running activities.
  • Supporting the improvement of facilities provision.
  • Advancing learning and development opportunities for athletics leadership – athletes, coaches, clubs, club volunteers and officials.
  • Supporting projects and initiatives delivered in line with scottishathletics and in conjunction with national strategies for the sport of athletics.

Fundraising Initiatives

In order to deliver its charitable objectives ATS will undertake a number of fundraising initiatives which will allow the charity to make donations to key projects which benefit athletics in Scotland. The supported projects will be delivered in line with the national strategy for athletics in Scotland, Building a Culture of Success, which is led by the governing body for the sport, scottishathletics.

Increase investment

To increase investment across athletics in Scotland over the next decade and beyond ATS will seek major donations and legacies in addition to grant funding and generic fundraising activities. ATS has identified several key projects that will initially be supported to ensure the charity can deliver against its charitable objectives. ATS will work with scottishathletics, clubs, local authorities and other key partners to promote the work of the charity and to widen access to the support available through ATS.
