Get Out Get Active
Get Out, Get Active was initially a four-year initiative to get people active in eighteen locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The focus is on increasing participation in fun and inclusive physical activity so that disabled and non-disabled people can enjoy this recreational activity together. Our £4.5 million award funded a UK-wide consortium led by the Activity Alliance who will deliver Get Out Get Active.
Due to its success, we have awarded an additional £3million to extend the programme for a further three years, extending its reach to new communities throughout the UK.
Almost one in five of the UK’s population are disabled – and more than two thirds of them want to be more active. Get Out Get Active aims to improve community cohesion in the delivery locations by enhancing the provision of physical activities for people with a disability. We know that physical activity increases independence and builds confidence – and this in turn benefits communities and the economy.
