Get Active Programme
The Get Active programme is being led by Argyle Community Trust, professional and community sport clubs across Plymouth are set to drive participation in Mayflower 400 and create a legacy of improved health and wellbeing. This will be achieved through a combination of headline and grassroots events, ensuring that opportunities are available for people of all ages and abilities.
Mayflower 400 UK is an honest, broad and inclusive commemoration of the ship’s sailing from England to America and its often challenging legacy. It will now mark the 400th anniversary year from 2020 through 2021. Informed by the past, the anniversary hopes to inspire the future.
This anniversary year will face up to these difficult truths and tell stories of persecution, loss and oppression as well as exploring the themes of migration, humanity and freedom that underpin its place in history. The commemoration is a shared history of four nations – the Wampanoag, UK, USA and Netherlands – each committed to unpacking the untold stories and highlighting the experiences of different ethnic groups both in history and today as well as studying both the religious and commercial reasons for the Pilgrims’ journey.

Argyle Community Trust has a clear vision to be an active, inspirational and inclusive community hub for the South West region. We aim to have a positive impact on a range of groups within society and to provide the local community with the opportunity to explore their full potential, improve their life chances and aspirations through the power of football and Plymouth Argyle FC.
We are hugely proud to say we have changed lives and inspired people over the past 20 years and envisage this to continue for many years to come. We offer a large range of activities and programmes from football to nationally recognised educational qualifications, from health to social action and disability.
Our Community Strategy builds on Argyle Community Trust’s desire to make a change to people’s lives using the power of Plymouth Argyle Football Club. The populations that we serve face barriers in relation to health, well-being, education, employment, levels of physical activity, high deprivation in some areas and low attainment levels.
