Currently, there are 19 legacy programmes that will help in the delivery of the three outcomes under this theme. All but two were newly developed or were shaped to form 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.
Three specifically help improve the physical and social environment and connectivity of Glasgow, particularly the East End; eleven provide support to help empower communities and groups at home and the Commonwealth; and five help demonstrate and spread our sustainable and environmental credentials.
In addition to legacy programmes, there are a number of Legacy 2014 supported projects, ie 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 Legacy 2014 supported projects, and on accessing the brand at the Legacy 2014-Brand Centre.
Sustainable Legacy Programmes – progress so far
Information on the legacy programmes within this section is drawn from the progress reported by the various partners delivering these legacy programmes, as at the preceding 31st March.
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.
