Macmillan Move More Programme
What is the Move More programme?
The Move More programme is a physical activity initiative delivered in partnership between Macmillan and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council (FODC) which is available to anyone who has had a cancer diagnosis, at any stage of their life.
Move More supports the lives of people with cancer through physical activity. Physical activity before, during and after cancer treatment can help prevent and manage the effects of treatment, such as fatigue, depression and risks to heart health.
Who can take part in the Move More programme?
The Move More programme is suitable for everyone, regardless of type of cancer, where someone may be in their cancer journey, or when they received their diagnosis.
What support is available through the Move More programme?
Participants on the Move More programme are offered a minimum of 1 year’s support to become or remain physically active. This support can include, a 12-week gym membership at any of the 4 Council leisure centres, tailored gym sessions, swimming, walking groups, active daily living tasks (ADLs), home – workouts and much more!
The Move More programme also provides an opportunity to meet other people on their own cancer journey, reducing loneliness and isolation and just offering a chance to talk to people who understand what it’s like living with cancer.
