WHAT DO WE DO?
Let’s Get Sporty is a not for profit social enterprise based in Dumfries & Galloway. We provide young people with training, mentoring and employment opportunities through the delivery of sport & physical activity.
WHY DO WE DO THIS?
In Dumfries & Galloway youth unemployment levels are high and physical activity levels are low…..this concerns us. We are focused on improving these with innovative, engaging, quality projects throughout the region.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
We provide young people with an individualised training programme focusing on improving their social skills, employability skills and self-confidence. They work with our staff to deliver our sport and physical activity programmes that cater for all ages and abilities throughout the region. We pride ourselves on getting young people to develop in a professional, inspiring environment delivering quality services in their local community.
Since we were established in 2012, 96% of our trainees have progressed to a positive destination (either education or employment). In total, our trainees have delivered over 10,000 hours of sport and physical activity throughout the region.
