OSS Forums

The OSS is guided by a wide range of people across a number of advisory groups. These valuable supporters of OSS provide expert guidance to the OSS and ensure clear channels to all parts of community sport in Scotland, and help to identify knowledge gaps and shape the organisation's direction. The Business Leaders also help us to engage widely across the business community and generate the funding that enables OSS to remain a well connected but independent organisation. We would like to thank all of the people who have joined our forums and extend a warm invitation to anyone interested in becoming part of the OSS family. For more details, email Director David Ferguson - david@oss.scot.
