EAST AYRSHIRE LEISURE OUT & ABOUT

EAST AYRSHIRE LEISURE OUT & ABOUT

“East Ayrshire Leisure Out & About”, is a new and massively exciting project funded by the UK Government, through the UK Community Renewal Fund. The project will be delivered between January and August 2022.

The funding will allow East Ayrshire Leisure Trust to deliver Leisure to the Heart of Every Community through 4 mobile units:

 The Festival Bus

This bus will focus on bringing events, workshops and programmes to communities and will deliver touring youth theatre initiatives. These programmes will celebrate local heritage, culture and greenspace.

The ‘Branching Out’ Bus

This bus will bring rural skills workshops into local greenspaces. Learning and teaching will take place on the bus as well as outdoors and the skills learned will be used to enhance greenspaces within our communities. The ‘Branching Out’ Bus will also allow us to expand our Natural Health project that works with young people referred through CAMHS.

The Digital Communities Bus

This bus will allow for skills development to reach out into many of the more rurally isolated communities to ensure equality of access region-wide. It will expand on our coding and digital activities programme and will also provide a safe environment for young people to work and study.

The ‘Activity on the Go’ Bus

This bus will offer supported fitness, sporting activities and couching for both individuals and groups, through access to a range of equipment and expertise. The Trust currently offers lifestyle activities through 7 of its venues, with only 3 within the most vulnerable communities across East Ayrshire. The ‘Activity on the Go’ Bus will extend this offer by supporting EAC’s CHIP van and primary care providers in every community throughout East Ayrshire.

We are currently recruiting for staff to take this programme out into the community. If you would be interested in joining us - find out more about the posts listed below at myjobscotland
