For men and women going through Cancer and other long-term conditions

Many people who have had cancer treatments find it extremely difficult and challenging to transition back to their everyday lives, feeling socially isolated. Often partners and other family members can feel the same way having supported loved ones during the prolonged periods of treatment and distress, feeling completely exhausted and in need of our support.

Our range of workshops are for patients, partners, carers and other family members. During the sessions you will have the chance to try our taster exercise sessions and relaxation classes, as well as taking part in informative seminars. You will have the chance to make new friends as well as speak to our specialists about how we can best support you. We can help you to regain your health, improve your physical and emotional strength and quality of life.
