Charter Map

The map below shows the organisations and individuals across Scotland who have committed to taking action to improve equality and reduce discrimination, ensuring mental health and wellbeing is not a barrier to engaging, participating and achieving in physical activity and sport.

From yoga to shinty; tennis to triathalons, there's something for everyone, with one shared goal - to use sport as a way of tackling mental health problems and creating positive change.

So, if you're looking to get active to improve your wellbeing, use the map below to find out who in your area is helping to promote mental health and wellbeing.
