Get Out Get Active (GOGA) is a UK wide physical activity initiative designed to increase participation. A single grant of £4.5 million is available for a programme of activity over three years which will be delivered in 8 to 20 locations spread across all four nations of the UK where there are high levels of the least active people.
Funding is available to increase people’s participation in fun and inclusive opportunities such as walking, jogging/running, cycling, dance, tai chi, outdoor gyms, orienteering, play, sport for fun and more. Activities should enable disabled and non-disabled people, their families and friends to enjoy recreational physical activity and get fit together. Investment should build community capacity through a high quality volunteer programme.
It is expected that the project will be delivered by a partnership, led by one organisation with the proven capacity to hold, manage and report on the grant. Applicants will need to demonstrate that the overall partnership they lead includes organisations with a track record in all of the following:
- Increasing physical activity amongst the least active groups.
- Delivering inclusive opportunities for disabled and non-disabled people to participate in physical activity on an equal basis.
- Delivering high quality volunteer management and deployment to increase access to recreational physical activity.
