Sport and Health

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar’s Sport & Health Section deliver and support a wide range of services across the Western Isles. Although we work together across all provision our services can be categorised as follows: Facilities; Sports Development; Active Schools and Outdoor Learning.

Our aim as a service is to work with all partners to encourage more people to become more active, and lead an active and healthy lifestyle. Throughout our Islands we have a high level of facilities, through CnES sports facilities, the school estate, community halls and the incredible array of opportunities provided by the outdoor playground that is the Western Isles.

We provide opportunities for young people to try a wide range of sports and activities to help them become active, and support local sports clubs, associations and schools. We also work closely with external agencies such as sportscotland (Opens in a new window or downloads a file) and Sports Governing Bodies to ensure we benefit from their resources.

As part of our work we organise regular events, often with input from local partners, for all ages to participate in.
