About the Programme
The XX Commonwealth Games was the first international mega sporting event in the UK, after the London 2012 Games. We wanted to invest in projects that would help create a UK-wide legacy for Glasgow’s hosting of this iconic global gathering, demonstrating that events can be catalysts for social change.
Our investments used the Games to create a legacy of wellbeing, aspiration and inclusion in Scotland and beyond. The projects work across community sport and physical activity, arts and culture and volunteering to increase participation and connect people within and across communities.
We have invested £4.5m in Spirit of Glasgow projects.
