Welcome to Living Well Active

Led by Macmillan Cancer Support, Sport England and Active Dorset, Living Well Active is a service for people (18+) living with or beyond cancer in Dorset. Whether you are in treatment for cancer, finished treatment or are years on beyond cancer, we are here to offer you a helping hand to health, fitness and wellbeing that's meaningful to you.

Being able to include physical activity into your life can reward you with a wealth of benefits not only in relation to cancer and its treatment but also you life as a whole. There is now an abundance of evidence to support the benefits of physical activity during and after cancer treatment. Keeping active can preserve or improve physical function and psychological well-being, reducing the negative impact of some cancer-related side-effects. Regular physical activity also has a potential role in reducing risk of cancer recurrence and increasing survival. This makes physical activity a good choice for anyone living with cancer wanting to improve their living well potential.

With this in mind, we have brought together healthcare professionals, physical activity and sport providers, educators, support groups and organisations who are passionate about helping people such as you to live the best life they can, and share what they have to offer with you. These include:

  • Referral from cancer health care professionals and support organisations.
  • Exercise referral programmes with trained staff.
  • Theraputic exercise, physical activity and sporting opportunities.
  • Living Well talks, courses and group support meetings.
  • Awards and qualifications for public and professionals.
  • Supporting charities and groups.
  • News, events and inspiration through our website and social media.

Ok... So how can we help you?
Well, firstly simply get in touch with us either through our Join Us page or just give us a call on 01202 426588 to speak to a member of our friendly support team. If it is outside their working hours, please leave your name and contact number and they will give you a call back. We will ask you for a few contact details so that we can send you some further supporting information and arrange a convenient time for one of our Living Well Active advisors to call back to chat with you personally about your current position, what you would like in relation to your own health, fitness and wellbeing, how we can help you on your way, and to answer any questions you may have.

If at this time you feel Living Well Active is for you, and based on your conversation with your advisor, we will then support you with the following...

  • Recommendations on how you can start creating your active life.
  • Introductions to activities and services that meet your personal needs and circumstances.
  • Introduction to a free personal health coaching service that could help you to get going, keep going and get results meaningful to you.
  • An invitation to join our free monthly group support meeting, Enrich Your Life in 28 Days, which includes a guest Living Well speaker, update on new Living Well opportunities, and an opportunity to share with like minded people that have gone though similar experiences as yourself.
  • Invitations to our free Discovery Talks on topics such as Mindfulness and Relaxation, and Sleeping Well.
