Get Out Get Active (GOGA) is an exciting new national programme, coordinated by English Federation of Disability Sport, which supports disabled and non-disabled people to enjoy being active together.

Funded by Spirit of 2012, all partners are focused on getting some of the UK’s least active people moving more through fun and inclusive activities.

Lambeth is one of two London boroughs which are working on the three year project from 2017 to 2019. Our local partnership includes Lambeth Council, Wheels for Wellbeing and Streatham Youth and Community Trust. Our particular focus is on disabled and non-disabled people doing sport and physical activity together. Our Activities Programme is being further developed to create more opportunities for this to happen but we are also working with other sport and activity providers including GLL Better to support them to make their services more inclusive of disabled people and their families and carers.

We have also recently been working closely with Disability Rights UK which has developed a peer mentoring scheme in Lambeth and Wandsworth during 2017. DASL is now taking over the management of the Lambeth peer mentoring scheme for 2018 onwards and will be recruiting new peer mentors and matching them with disabled people who want to be more active. Contact our Into Sport Worker, Abs Tripp, if you want to get involved in this.
