“Supporting & empowering young people to be confident, capable, independent and responsible citizens within their own communities.”
Established in 2006, the project uses sports and other creative activities to provide free alternatives for young people during the evenings by deploying mobile activity arenas into locations throughout the city, taking activities directly to young people within their own communities.

CR spends money raised by its fundraising campaigns, Red Nose Day & Sport Relief
Streetsport rely on ‘Streetsport Volunteers’ to assist with the on-site deployment and organisation of activities. Volunteers benefit in a variety of ways and gain experience as part of a dedicated and enthusiastic team.
Streetsport have also established and implemented a structured rewards programme through the Saltire Awards and all volunteers (between the ages of 16 – 25) are registered with Volunteer Scotland, a national organization that provides leadership on Volunteering Policy and Practice.
In June 2015 Streetsport was awarded with the Volunteer Friendly Award.
