Sporting Heritage Scotland Survey

You are invited to participate in the Scotland Development Pilot Programme Survey. This survey is being carried out by Sporting Heritage, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The aim of the survey is to document the number, type, and location of sporting heritage collections across Scotland to provide a clear picture of what exists, what risks the collections face, and what opportunities there are to better support and develop this area in the future.

The information gathered in this survey will be used to:

1) Create a record of your collection in the public Sporting Heritage list of collections, if you choose that option. This is a register of sporting-related collections held by museums, archives and clubs around the country.

2) Inform the development of a strategy and work plan for Sporting Heritage Scotland, intended to address risks facing sporting heritage collections in Scotland, make the most of opportunities to use these collections, and address gaps in collections.

You will be asked to complete a two-part survey:

1) The first part contains 12 questions and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. It ends with an option to create a record of your collection in the public Sporting Heritage list of collections.

2) The second part is more detailed than part 1 and depends on the type of collection you have. Your answers in this part will not be published and will be used only to inform the strategy and work plan for Sporting Heritage Scotland.

Your participation is entirely voluntary, and you can withdraw at any time. You are free to complete only the first part of the survey, and you may ignore any question that does not have an asterisk.

If you are interested in taking part, please download a copy of the Participant Information Sheet and retain this for your records before starting the survey. This information sheet also includes frequently asked questions and further information.

If you have any questions, please email us.
