Following the feedback of our W13 Gets Rolling project we would like to bring the roller-skating activity to spaces across Ealing this winter.
Everyone who attended the outdoor roller-rink enjoyed the experience and thought it was a great way of bringing people into the park and getting people active. Children and adults learnt or improved their skating skills and enjoyed the rolladisco, being outside and appreciated the support of qualified and experienced staff. Many people have taken up skating in the after school clubs or invested in skates so they can get more active.
We would like to bring the roller-rink to spaces that are underused and areas where people live. For example Multi Use Games Areas, open spaces, parks, community halls, on or near housing estates around the whole of West London.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This will take an exciting project and a fun activity to areas where people live but may not feel much of a community spirit or have opportunities to come together as a community.
We will engage children, young people and adults in a physical activity that is easy to sustain and is fun.
We will bring the community together having, coached roller skating programs, roller discos, team, speed skating, roller derby, artsitic skating, hockey and team activities
We can work with local the voluntary sector, residents groups and local services to help promote important heath and well being, sports participation benefit, youth engagement and development messages to people.
Steps to get it done:
This project is about using rollerskating as a tool for community development and involvement. The key is the partnership with the local voluntary sector hub, local resident associations and the RollaDome and Conscious Team to create a sustainable impact on the areas that the rollerink is placed.
If feedback shows that there is interest in the activity and RollaDome continuing in the long term we will work with local people to make it happen. If not at least the community will have had a fun expereince and will have more knowledge of the community groups available to support them.
