Let’s hear your voice: join our Young People’s Forum

scottishathletics are delighted to welcome 15 individuals who have been successful in becoming part of our new Young People’s Forum.

This forum is a national group selected to give young people a platform and voice in all aspects of the planning, development, and delivery of athletics in Scotland.

Within an age range of 14-23, no fewer than 40 applications for the Young People’s Forum were received – which exceeded all our expectations!

The successful young people took part in a group interview and then an individual interview.

Due to the calibre of those interviewed, we have now selected 15 young people to be part of the Forum instead of the 12 that was originally intended.
