Aims & objectives

LEAP Sports Scotland (Leadership, Equality and Active Participation in Sports for LGBTI people in Scotland) works for greater inclusion for LGBTI people in sport and against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in a sports context. We are committed to breaking down the structural, social and personal barriers which prevent lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people across the country from accessing, participating and excelling in Scottish sports. LEAP Sports Scotland has a packed programme of events, activities and projects to encourage more LGBTI people to try or get involved in sport. We also aim to work closely with new and existing LGBTI sports clubs to help them develop through training, advice and resources.
