SO ACTIVE is a Sport England Community Sport Activation fund project which has been successfully funded to work over the next 3 years to June 2017 to increase participation in Sport and Physical Activity to 3 key demographics - Youth, Families and Over 50's - in the Bedwell area of Stevenage.
The project, which has been funded to the total of £220,504, will provide a range of activities which will be open to the key demographics listed and will take place in community venues, open spaces and leisure facilities in and around the Bedwell area. We aim to ensure that 75% of those attending these sessions live within the Bedwell ward, therefore the marketing and strategies to attract our potential attendees will be focused around groups and residential dwellings.
Projects will be delivered by a number of key local partners, with Stevenage Borough Council Sports Development the overall project manager. These partners include;
Following on from our community launch in October projects from these partners are already live and new projects will be starting in January 2015 including family sport activities, Continuation of Health M.O.T's at Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre and opportunities for participation in activities for those aged 50+
