‘Get Set to Go’ is a nationwide physical activity programme run by Mind (and funded by Sport England and the National Lottery) which aims to support people with mental health problems to get more active as a way of improving their mental wellbeing.
It was expanded, thanks to fundraising from the EFL and Mind’s ‘On Your Side’ partnership, to include nine EFL Clubs: Charlton Athletic, Millwall, Carlisle United, Derby County, AFC Wimbledon, Stevenage, Newport County, Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland AFC.
These clubs and their Community Trusts partnered with their respective local Minds to deliver the ‘Get Set to Go’ programme.
Although COVID-19 interrupted face to face delivery of the programme, social contact between many of the participants was maintained during lockdown, with some online delivery of physical activity taking place.
The programme has been extended to February 2021, with results published in the spring.
