Macmillan Move More Wandsworth

mac15652_move_more_fb_640x360Enable Leisure and Culture has recently launched a new service in partnership with Macmillan called Move More Wandsworth.

The aim of the service is to support people living with and beyond cancer become more active. It’s been proven that taking part in physical activity during and after cancer treatment is safe and has many long term benefits. This includes reducing consequences of treatment, such as fatigue and the risk of developing other conditions such as osteoporosis and diabetes. Lots of people also tell us that physical activity helps them take back control and feel more like their old self.

The service is open to anyone with a cancer diagnosis in Wandsworth (regardless of when the diagnosis was made). Consultations are delivered by physical activity specialists who understand cancer and can offer tailored support. This includes helping people choose a physical activity programme that is at the right level for them and giving them motivational support for 12 months.
