Get Out Get Active (GOGA) is an exciting UK wide programme that supports disabled and non-disabled people to enjoy being active together. It is made possible by founding funder Spirit of 2012 and additional investment from Sport England and the London Marathon Charitable Trust. All partners are focused on getting some of the UK’s least active people moving more through fun and inclusive activities.
GOGA goes far beyond increasing activity levels, it strengthens community spirit, increases confidence and improves mental health. The programme increases the demand for, and the accessibility of, activities. It has been successful so far by tapping into people’s real life motivations such as building friendships, maintaining health, having fun and progressing in life.
GOGA is currently being delivered in:
GOGA was originally launched in 2016 in the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council area and Derry and Strabane District Council area. While the programme officially ended in both areas in 2019 many of the programmes established continue. Click on the links below to find out what GOGA has achieved in Northern Ireland to date.
