Get Moving

Do you know someone who is starting or going through cancer treatment and could benefit from taking part in our 12-week wellbeing support programme? Big C’s Get Moving programme is designed to increase physical activity with weekly online exercise classes and regular 1:1 support.

Who is the programme for?

The programme is suitable for anyone aged 18 years and over who would like to get more active at any stage of their cancer treatment: pre, during, or after.

We will always ensure it’s safe and appropriate for you to participate, and you will be invited to a 1:1 session before you start the programme to ensure it’s right for you.

What does the programme consist of?

Sessions are held weekly, over a period of 12 weeks, including…

One to one phone call

A discussion on what you’d like to achieve by taking part.

Weekly group exercise sessions

These will be held online.

Regular 1:1 support

We’ll support you all the way, helping you to increase your physical activity as you go.

“Big C has given me something to do outside the grey world of cancer and allowed me to mix with other people during the pandemic and reconnect with the world outside.”

Cancer and exercise

Keeping active before, during, and after cancer treatment can help both your physical and mental health.

Essential Flavour

We’ve been working with Co-Founder of Life Kitchen, Ryan Riley, and together have produced a 15-recipe cook book, which is available for anyone affected by cancer and the cost-of-living crisis.

You can download your copy free of charge from our website, or order your free copy (£3 p&p fee applies) and we’ll send it out to you within 3 working days.
