The Get Out Get Active (GOGA) in Fife programme plans to encourage and support inactive individuals and groups to engage and remain “active for life”. It focuses on increasing the number of people who are active, through effective engagement and signposting to local quality physical activity options.
Supported by Spirit of 2012, GOGA in Fife will inspire children, young people and adults with a physical, sensory or learning disability, plus significant others, to access and enjoy physical activity including sport. GOGA in Fife is inclusive in ethos and practice and will involve key Disability Sport Fife partners Fife Council, Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, Scottish Disability Sport, the local voluntary sector and three national partners concerned with walking, cycling and swimming.
Allan and Mandy Robertson from Glenrothes are two DSF members who are benefitting from GOGA in Fife. Allan has always been active and has an impressive history of representing DSF in a number of sports. Along with wife Mandy he has embarked on a daily walking programme that is recorded in a DSF diary and celebrated at an agreed time each month in the DSF office. They also swim together in a DSF session supported by GOGA. There is a clear commitment by this Fife couple to be more active more often and the introduction of GOGA in Fife has provided the incentive for change. Well done Allan and Mandy.
