This Cancer Rehabilitation Exercise Scheme is aimed at cancer patients and run by Dawn, a qualified Level 4 Cancer Rehab Exercise specialist at Osprey Leisure Centre.
The scheme was started in 2018 when C’Siders realised there was a need for this in our area. Working alongside Osprey Leusure Centre, initial funding was received from Macmillan Cancer Support, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council and About Face. C’Siders continues to support the scheme financially and with volunteers at the sessions.
If you are interested in joining, please check out the Information Leaflet for more details.
You will need to get a referral from your GP or other health care professional, so give them the Referral Leaflet if they don’t already have it. This gives them the information they need about the scheme together with the referral form itself. Ask them to complete the form to confirm that they are happy for you to take part.
Remember this is for anyone who has had a cancer diagnosis, recently or in the past, who may benefit from gentle exercise in a friendly and supportive environment.
All participants at C’Fit are welcome to join C’Siders and attend our meetings and other activities.
