Get Set Go
In 2021, the L&Q Foundation kick-started its Get Set Go project with Sport England, supported by the National Lottery.
Activities will focus on increasing community participation in sports, recreation and other physical activities over the next two years.
Get Set Go will deliver 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 will be two activity hubs at the Seddon Centre in Waltham Forest and the Lewington Centre in Lewisham and activities will take place across both boroughs in parks, local leisure facilities and schools.
We'll work with local residents of all ages and from an ethnically and culturally diverse range of groups to design, develop and pilot an innovative, digital wayfinding project. It will use the latest technology to signpost people to health, wellbeing and sporting facilities and the general community. This will include the use of digital community notice boards to communicate key information and reduce digital exclusion.
How to find out more
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 will be small pots of grant funding available for self-initiated projects that will be supported by L&Q and partners.
