Get OUT Glasgow

Get active and gain confidence being outdoors with Get Back OUT Glasgow!


Get Back OUT is a project funded by Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership. This project aims to use sport and physical activity to improve the lives of marginalised LGBTIQ+ people in the Greater Glasgow area who are socially isolated, at risk of poor health outcomes, or uncertain about re-engaging in society and physical activity following Covid-19 restrictions being eased.

Get Back OUT is a peer support group focussed on helping LGBTIQ+ people feel comfortable about getting out of the house and offers a sense of community to those who are isolated and/or lonely in the Greater Glasgow area.

The GBO group have taken part in a variety of activities since we started the project in June 2021. Below you can see some photos from previous events, which include stand-up paddleboarding, hiking, snowboarding, jiu jitsu, and so many more!

If you’re interested in getting involved, you can request to join the Get Back OUT Facebook group here. Everything will be communicated via this platform, including an activity noticeboard, resource library, group drop-in sessions and more. If you don’t have Facebook but would still like to take part, please email carolina@leapsports.org.
