Community Fit

Community Fit is an 18-month pilot programme to develop a Harrogate-based activity group, bringing together local people who meet to be social and active while giving time to Harrogate’s people and spaces.

Running for one year as of June 2023, Community Fit has achieved success in supporting people to be both physically active and engaged within their community as well as contributing time and resources to local groups and organisations who benefit from volunteer contributions.

Community Fit has worked with nearly 20 FitPartners, including schools, community centres, and social charities. 100s of hours of volunteering time have been contributed which include; digging ponds, organising donations, clearing gardens, tidying streets, and inflating balls for PE classes!

While membership and community impact continues to build, additional funding to support our next steps is also being sought. This includes supporting individuals in their homes and, through time and activities, contributing to older people being able to live independently for longer with an improved quality of life.

Community Fit is a collaborative project between HADCA and North Yorkshire Sport and the initial pilot supported with an NHS grant received via Community First Yorkshire.
