In 2009, Jubilee Hall Trust, Camden council and GLL ran Give It A Go! – a scheme to get disadvantaged and inactive residents of Camden more active by giving them free access to Camden’s gyms. The project got 1300 people involved and was nominated for the Chief Medical Officers Award.
Now, thanks to £20,000 funding from NHS London, matched with £20,000 funding from Camden, we are preparing for Give It A Go! 2. The partners, this time including the Central YMCA club, have agreed a contribution in kind worth over £150,000 so that, once again, more than 1000 residents could benefit. The programme will start in early 2012.
