Currently, there are 13 legacy programmes that will help in the delivery of the three outcomes under this theme. Nine of these programmes were newly developed or were shaped to maximise new opportunities arising as a result of the Games coming to Glasgow in 2014. The others were existing programmes or activity that use the power of the Games to strengthen focus and increase momentum.
Two programmes will use the Games as a platform and as a source of contract opportunities to help existing and potential Scottish businesses prosper on a national and international stage; Seven programmes use the opportunities around, and inspiration of, the Games to provide pathways into employment, training and volunteering, particularly for young and unemployed people; and four use the Games to profile Scotland and its world class venues to help attract tourism, events, and business.
In addition to legacy programmes, there are a number of Legacy 2014 supported projects, i.e. smaller projects, events and activities happening across the country that have been inspired by the Games and which contribute to the national legacy outcomes. The supported projects benefit from using the Legacy 2014 brand and the underpinning brand benefits package. More information on the supported projects can be found at Legacy 2014 supported projects, and on accessing the brand at the Legacy 2014-Brand Centre.
Flourishing Legacy Programmes – progress so far
The information on these legacy programmes is drawn from the progress reported by the various partners delivering the programmes.
An overview of the legacy story across all themes is available on the Legacy 2014 website. This website provide various case studies of how individuals, groups, communities, schools and businesses are already getting involved in legacy activity and feeling the benefits, as well as highlighting where opportunities still exist to get involved.
