The Get Set Go health and wellbeing project

The Get Set Go project provides a range of activities to help improve the health and wellbeing of residents living in and around Waltham Forest and Lewisham. Here, you’ll find information about these events and how to register your interest.

About Get Set Go

In 2021, the L&Q Foundation kick-started its two-year Get Set Go project with Sport England, supported by the National Lottery.

Activities focus on increasing community participation in sports, recreation and other physical activities.

Get Set Go delivers a range of inclusive sports and fitness activities to support residents’ health and wellbeing in and around the Beaumont Estate in Waltham Forest and the Silwood Estate in Lewisham.

There are two activity hubs, one is the Seddon Centre in Waltham Forest and the other is the Lewington Centre in Lewisham. Activities take place across both boroughs in parks, local leisure facilities and schools.

We've worked with residents of all ages, ethnicities and cultures to design, develop and pilot an innovative and digital wayfinding project.

It uses the latest technology to signpost people to health, wellbeing and sporting facilities and the general community. This includes the use of digital community notice boards to communicate key information and reduce digital exclusion.

Help support the project

We want to hear from local community groups, schools and colleges, and other organisations that:

  • can support the consultation and/or delivery of this project
  • have demand to deliver physical activities for the residents they work with
  • can offer added value, including support with mental health, education, nutrition, employment, financial literacy, skills and training, mentorship, violence reduction, aspiration raising and confidence building, and more

There are small pots of grant funding available for self-initiated projects that will be supported by L&Q and partners.
