Strategic priorities for sport

Perth and Kinross offers an incomparable setting for sport and physical activity of all kinds, for everyone.

Sports facilities are concentrated in our 6 large towns of Aberfeldy, Auchterarder, Blairgowrie, Crieff, Kinross, and Pitlochry, as well as the City of Perth. Alongside, our natural environment is a huge asset for encouraging people to live an active life, and it is a unique characteristic of our area. Encouraging people to use this natural asset is therefore just as important as increasing use of built facilities and participation in sports and activity programmes if we are to improve health and wellbeing.

  • Tackling inequalities: better health, social and economic outcomes for everyone in Perth and Kinross.
  • Empowered communities: supporting culture and sport initiatives to grow and succeed as part of vibrant local communities.
