Physical Activity Programme - Come Outside 

The key purpose of the project is to inspire, motivate and support the target groups to lead more physically active lifestyles which are in line with the recommendations set out in the report from the four home countries’ Chief Medical Officers: ‘Start Active, Stay Active’ endorsed by Welsh Government.

This will be achieved by engaging with the target groups and involve them in outdoor activities. To design and deliver those activities with the target group so the activities meet their needs and increase their physical activity levels. The groups are supported to self-organise and resource their own outdoor activity groups. This develops peer support, which helps individuals to continue participating, as well as improving low confidence and self-esteem, which are common barriers to participation.

Officers from the project will assist to

  • Design and deliver engagement activities with the target groups
  • Design and deliver participative outdoor activity taster sessions with the groups.
  • Provide on-going support to enable the Outdoor Activity Groups to participate in outdoor activities designed to meet their needs and increase their physical activity levels.
  • Support the Outdoor Activity Groups to develop their capacity to self-organise and resource their activity.
  • Provide ongoing/declining support, linking the Outdoor Activity Groups with partners and networks that can support them to sustain participation in outdoor activities as part of their lifestyle.
