Just Turn Up
What is Just Turn
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 /
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;
