In our vibrant and multi-cultural town, our Outreach and Communities team plays an important role working with many different groups in a variety of community settings across Luton.
What is Outreach?
Our goal is to go out into the community to help make an impact on everyone living Luton by encouraging them to improve their quality of life, overall health and general wellbeing through exercise and physical activity.
Why is this team different?
The team works in community settings as well as in Active Luton centres creating pathways for people to get active in many different ways and specifically focusing on groups who face barriers to participation. By having a team that is able to go out into the community, we're able to meet those in need of help and support in familiar surroundings and develop activity programmes specifically for them in there local communities whether it be in parks, schools or community centres.
Working in Partnership
Our team works in partnership with many like-minded organisations and offers a wide range of hugely successful, highly accessible programmes for all ages and abilities. These include:
- ME TIME - an award-winning project funded by Sport England to raise participation among women and girls (aged 14+) in Luton in physical activity
- ME TIME Family - part of the Flying Start programme to improve the life chances of children growing up in Luton by providing opportunities for parents to get active with their children from pregnancy up to five years old
