It focuses on getting some of the UK’s least active people moving more through fun and inclusive activities in their local communities.
Delivered by the English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) and their partners and funded by Spirit of 2012, it runs for over three years (2016-2019) within 18 localities (areas) across the UK, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. Disability Rights UK is a National Partner.
As part of GOGA, Disability Rights UK is running a Peer Support project working with Disabled People’s Organisations and local sport and fitness organisations and providers to get people moving and enjoying fun activity- not just sport. Peer Support is about someone using their lived experience of overcoming barriers to support someone else who might be experiencing similar barriers. It takes many forms but is usually one to one and informal. The benefits of using peer support to be more active can be life changing. From boosting confidence to becoming healthier and improving mental wellbeing.
