Helping women and girls in South Somerset to get moving

in it together (iit) is a brand new 3 year project in South Somerset which will help women and girls aged 14+ to be more active. By linking in with current female sport programmes (ie Back to Hockey and Back to Netball) and creating specifically targeted opportunities iit aims to offer affordable activities in the right place and time. The goal of the project is to increase the amount of women playing sport once a week.


The project is led by South Somerset District Council in partnership with Somerset Activity & Sports Partnership (SASP) and Yarlington Housing Group. Iit was made possible thanks to National Lottery funding of £163,294 from Sport England.

Why we are in it together

31.7% of females within South Somerset take part in sport and physical activity (at least once per week) compared with 37.5% of males.* Our local survey of 300 females found that 96% of wanted to be more physically active. This funding will enable us and our local partners to start breaking down many of the barriers to participation in sport that exist for women and girls in South Somerset. *2012/13 Active People survey
