Who are we?

Get set, go Dacorum is a £250,000 Sport England funded project to help more local people get active and healthy across Dacorum!

Working closely with local organisations and partners, the Get set, go team at Dacorum Borough Council will be busy developing an exciting programme of activities for local people to get involved in, until September 2017.

What do we offer?

We have a great range of activities on offer, with something for everyone!

Whether you want to get back into a sport you once enjoyed, try something completely new or make sure you or your family get more active this year, Get set, go Dacorum is the project for you!

We listen to you. We put on sessions that local people have asked for and expressed an interest in so as many people as possible can come along and enjoy the sessions.

So, how much does it cost?

Great question! Here at Get set, go Dacorum HQ we aren’t interested in putting on expensive sessions… we want everyone to be able to take part in exercise and our activities. We work hard to keep the price of every session as low as possible. Many of our sessions are around £3 and the best news is…some are free!

Our prices vary between sessions so take a look at our calendar page to find out more information.

How are we funded?

We received £250,000 from Sport England, £45,000 from Dacorum Borough Council and £17,500 from Sportspace to fund this three year project.

We also have many local partners and are working closely with local clubs and organisations right across Dacorum. You can find out more about these organisations on our partners page

Volunteer ‘Buddy’ Scheme

Not knowing what’s “right” or not being able to interpret instructions can make someone with a support need feel self-conscious, uncomfortable and unable to participate.  The ‘Buddy’ scheme will go some way to easing those concerns.  By matching people with a volunteer ‘buddy’, it can make the participant’s experience a much more positive and sustainable one. 

If you want to get involved in this scheme and be there to help those with a support need then contact the Project Lead at getsetgo@dacorum.gov.uk for further information.
