Leeds Rhinos Foundation in partnership with Yorkshire Cancer Research will be running their next Active Beyond Cancer programme beginning in February 2019.
Please see the information below regarding the structure and content of the programme and further details about their Tea and Talk information sessions held at the end of January.
Active Beyond Cancer is a free 12 week programme for anyone over the age of 18 who has been diagnosed with cancer and is either pre, during or post treatment.
Our Tea and Talk information sessions will be held at the same three venues: Armley, Fearnville and Rothwell on the 23rd and 24th of January and will be a chance for anybody interested to meet the health practitioners working on the programme for an informal chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
Here we will address any questions or concerns they may have about the programme and provide a detailed overview of what they can get out of the programme from our viewpoint and that of past participants. After this they will have the opportunity to sign for a personalised consultation with a Level 4 Cancer Rehabilitation Exercise Specialist
The consultation with the participant allows us to discover what they wish to get out the programme in order to provide the correct level of support.
For some this may just be an information leaflet and signposting to the activity sessions within the community, however others may wish to join us on the 12 week programme.
This is run across three Leisure Centres in Leeds: Armley, Rothwell and Fearnville, please see the attached flyer for more details about the times and the venues.
For those joining the 12 week programme there will be weekly sessions which are split into 45 minute education topics around nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices and 45 minutes of physical activity, which acts as a taster session for community based sessions participants can access during and after the programme.
The promotional material which can be downloaded below consists of a Tea and Talk information letter for anyone looking to find out more about the programme, the flyer outlining the dates, times and venues of the programme and a flow chart to show the journey through the programme once joining us.
If you could please share the promotional material around any contacts you may have that could be interested that would be greatly appreciated.
