Just Turn Up

just Turn Up logoWhat is Just Turn Up?

The ‘Just Turn Up’ programme is a localised project to help deliver affordable community based activities in and around the most deprived wards in the Borough of Bedford. The delivery mechanism for this programme is deployed by Alison Brightman the programme Community Sports Activator and Steve Savva the programme Project Manager. Alison and Steve’s main objectives are to engage with the key communities in the Borough in order to coordinate and deliver activities appropriate to the cultural and diverse nature of their populations.

The primary objective of the programme is to significantly increase the levels of participation for people aged between 14-30 (male and female), this will be achieved through a variety of activity offers and positive collaboration with clubs, schools, National Governing Bodies, community groups and other providers / service organisations.

The secondary outcome of the programme is to create opportunities for local people to increase their life skills through the access of coaching / officiating and leadership qualifications. This will start to create a sustainable process for the delivery of activities for future years.

If you would like to be involved or know more about the programme please contact Alison Brightman; alison.brightman@bedford.gov.uk – Community Sports Activator or Steve Savva; steve.savva@bedford.gov.uk – Project Manager
