The Scottish Parliament Health & Sport Committee have been looking at the impact of COVID restrictions on Sports clubs and groups in Scotland. They recently ran a questionnaire which received a huge response from clubs and groups throughout the country. They have now launched another questionnaire that is looking to hear directly from INDIVIDUALS who would normally access these sports clubs or the community projects that are attached to them. They want to hear what impact the COVID restrictions have had on people who would normally access these places.
The questionnaire can be found here: https://yourviews.parliament.scot/health/covid-sport-individuals/
