More people to 'Get Out Get Active' in Nottingham
Nottingham will launch GOGA at Harvey Hadden Sports Village on 25 October, from 10 am to 1 pm, with a Cycling for All session delivered with partners Ridewise. There are three areas of Nottingham where GOGA will take place. Bilborough, Aspley and Bulwell, St Ann's and Dales, and Clifton.
GOGA is a great way to get people doing a little bit more to keep them fit and active. The aim is to break down the barriers for people taking part – this might be making sure disabled people can easily participate, training people to deliver sessions that include everybody; or by keeping costs down, and putting sessions in places where there are fewer opportunities
Councillor Dave Trimble, portfolio holder for leisure and culture
The three-year project has been developed to get some of the UK's least active people moving more. GOGA will concentrate on fun and inclusive activities and supporting disabled and non-disabled people who don't necessarily have regular access to sport and fitness activities. They are encouraged to enjoy being active together, improving not only their health, but happiness and mental wellbeing.
Spirit of 2012 is funding the £4.5 million initiative, which brings together 18 GOGA localities in the UK and Northern Ireland as well as numerous national partners. The English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) is the lead GOGA partner. Read more about GOGA here.
