Get Out Get Active website goes live

Thursday 30 March 2017

The new Get Out Get Active (GOGA) programme website is now live. The programme’s funders, Spirt of 2012, have supported the new mobile responsive site, which enables more people to access essential GOGA information

Get Out Get Active (GOGA) is an exciting new programme that supports disabled and non‑disabled people to take part in fun and inclusive activities together.

All partners are focused on getting some of the UK’s least active people moving more through fun and inclusive activities. You can view the new website here.

The programme runs for over three years (2016-2019) and within 18 localities across the UK. They have teamed up with an extensive range of partners to help us reach more people, who have the greatest need to get out and get active. These partners offer in-depth local knowledge and national expertise.

Disability Rights UK is just one of the nationwide partners supporting Get Out Get Active.

We will be developing peer-mentoring programmes with all partners – this will mean training people to become mentors to help others achieve their potential. This aims to increase the number of disabled people participating in fun, physical activity and volunteering. This will involve initially working in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Wandsworth then sharing our learning with GOGA delivery partners in other regions in years two and three.

We will provide broader support to the GOGA programme by supporting connectivity between GOGA partners and local Disabled People’s User Led Organisations.

To get involved contact GOGA Peer Support Lead Kate Pieroudis at kate.pieroudis@disabilityrightsuk.org or call her at 020 7250 8111.
