GOGA RCT

Welcome to the Rhondda Cynon Taf Get Out Get Active section. My name is Geraint Edwards and I’m the Get Out Get Active (GOGA) Activator for Rhondda Cynon Taf.

 

Get Out Get Active (GOGA) in Rhondda Cynon Taf

The GOGA project in Rhondda Cynon Taf aims to get more inactive and disabled people active through any form of sport or physical activity, with a particular focus in communities with high levels of economic deprivation. Over the three year duration of the project GOGA plans to develop an inclusive, sustainable activity programme, working in partnership with a range of clubs, groups and organisations.

 

Who can get involved in GOGA?

Participants- If you have a disability and would like to become more physically active GOGA could help. If you are interested in trying an activity which is not currently supported by GOGA get in touch anyway, as part of the Disability Sport Wales team there are a large variety of inclusive sports clubs and groups we can signpost you to.

 

Volunteers- If you are looking for an opportunity to volunteer on an exciting new programme then GOGA may be able to help. As the programme continues to grow so will the need for volunteers in a variety of roles. If you are interested in discussing volunteering opportunities please get in touch on the contact information at the bottom of this page.

 

Clubs/groups/organisations- If you are looking to make your activities more inclusive or have any ideas for potential partnership work please get in touch via the contact details at the bottom of this page.
