Lockdown Resources

It’s a really challenging time right now, but here at MOVE Charity, we want to encourage you to stay active and keep moving, by focusing on what you CAN do safely and within government and Public Health guidelines. 

If you are unable to get outside to exercise, then it’s really important to keep moving whilst you are at home. Listen to your body and remember that even light activity like getting up to make a cup of

tea and moving around your home is better than not moving at all. 


We hope this section provides you with the support and inspiration you need to keep moving during lockdown. 

 

*Please note these give a taster of the work MOVE does but they are not specific to any particular patient or cancer diagnosis. Always listen to your body and advice from your medical team.  If you have any questions or if you are interested in tailored 1-1 support via the MOVE 8 week programme, head over to https://movecharity.org/8-week-online-programme

If you’re on active treatment, your medical team will need to refer you to MOVE but if you have finished treatment, you can refer yourself to us (with approval from a parent/guardian if you are under 18.)
