To run health and well being workshops to improve the health and well being of people with cancer across the Thames Valley. These events will be community focused and help people with cancer and their carers to focus on improving nutrition and increasing physical activity.
When receiving a cancer diagnosis people with cancer often want to focus on diet and nutrition. There often isn't a huge amount of information out there for them. Likewise, when having treatment for cancer people often think that they shouldn't exercise. The research shows that actually the benefits to exercising are huge. The physical and mental health of people with cancer is so important and these community workshops will support people with cancer thus helping to improve cancer outcomes.
The community team will run health and well being workshops focused on nutrition and physical activity across the Thames Valley. We will bring communities together by teaching them to self manage, reducing loneliness and isolation and by supporting their physical and mental health that is so important at this difficult time. These sessions will be focused on people with cancer and their carers.
