Covid-19 update:

Due to Covid-19 sessions are carried out virtually–either one-to-one or as a group–though the option of face-face or telephone (if people can’t access the sessions virtually) is also offered. Informal community coffee mornings are also hosted which participants have found invaluable during Covid-19 for sharing their experiences and providing peer-to-peer support and encouragement. 


The NCL Move4You programme is a 12-session guided physical activity programme for adults who have had a cancer diagnosis in the last five years. 

It provides ongoing support for 12 months, led by specialist activity instructors. It is tailored to each individual, supporting people of all abilities to engage with a variety of activities to help them move more during and after treatment. 

Benefits

The programme helps optimise a patient’s health outcomes before, during and after cancer treatment. Research shows that there are many benefits of physical activity at all stages of the cancer pathway including:

  • reduced fatigue and pain
  • increased flexibility
  • improved mood
  • general fitness and bone health
  • a reduced risk of osteoporosis
  • maintaining a healthy weight
