Dorset Mind are delighted to have been awarded funding by Sport England and the National Lottery to deliver the ‘Get Set to Go’ programme. Our Get Set to Go programme aims to improve the quality of life for anyone with a mental health problem through access to sport and physical activity in the local community. With support from Sport England and the National Lottery, Get Set to Go is proven to help overcome the barriers that some of us face when trying to get active for our physical and mental health.

Dorset Mind will be working closely with partners including Active Dorset and other sports/leisure providers to deliver welcoming and inclusive sports/physical activity sessions to members of the community. The programme will include different taster sessions to give people the chance to try out various activities and a select number of 12 week group programmes of activity.

Volunteering with Get Set to Go

As part of the Get Set to Go programme, Dorset Mind will be looking to recruit Peer Volunteers who will be so valuable in helping us to provide support to participants who are taking part in the physical activity sessions. This rewarding opportunity will enable individuals to enjoy their physical activity journey and allow them to fully appreciate the benefits of physical activity and the positive impact it can have on mental health.

If you feel you would be able to offer support to individuals taking part in Get Set to Go or would like to find out more about this highly rewarding opportunity, please contact Nicola Whitehead on
