Get Going

Get Going is a free programme in North Lincolnshire for young people above a healthy weight aged from 4-16 years old. It aims to motivate young people and their families to lead a healthier lifestyle through individual appointments and weekly group activity sessions, and so reduce the risks of adult obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes as the young people get older.

Get Going is delivered through three age appropriate programmes of delivery, Get Going 4-6, Get Going 7-11 and Get Going 12-16.

Get Going 4-6 is focused on active play, food tasting, healthy eating and fun games with the young person attending a weekly Get Going fun club. All young people are invited to free holiday camps run by the get going team during each school holiday.

Get Going 7-11 is based on fun activities, games and healthy eating with the young person attending a weekly Get Going club and also invited to free holiday camps run by the get going team during school holidays.

Get Going 12-16 is designed to work similar to a personal training plan with one to one physical activity and nutrition sessions.

All young people will also be provided with a Get Going Leisure Card where they will be able to access leisure activities for free over the 10 week period including swimming, badminton and junior gym.
