New project announcement: Get Out and About Locally (GOAL)

Posted: 11 Jul 2019

We are pleased to announce a new project from Hackney Community Transport. The Get Out and About Locally (GOAL) programme aims to provide support for people who find it difficult to leave their homes due to loneliness, confidence, lack of motivation or mobility difficulties. GOAL will be a bookable excursion service, including transport and an activity, running 5 days per week. Activities will include stitch and knit, men in sheds, Bingo, day trips to the seaside, local theatre and cinemas. The cost of each activity is £3.  

Funding for the project has been secured through the Big Lottery and will run over an 18 month period. It is initially for 2-3 months, depending on the individual’s progress. If you work with an organisation in Hackney, are an individual or know an individual who finds it difficult to leave home, please contact Claire Smith at 020 7274 2400 or email
