Move More Angus

What is Move More?

ANGUSalive is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to develop Move More across Angus. Move More Scotland is part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s national campaign to support people living with and beyond cancer to find an activity that is right for them, with individually tailored health behaviour change support for people to continue to be active.

The programme aims to ensure that people living with cancer are supported to become physically active, both before, during and after treatment. In addition to our established programme of activities, we are now developing a programme of cancer specific opportunities:

Gentle Movement

Circuit-based Classes

Walking Groups

Gardening

Why Move More?

Leading a physically active lifestyle during and after cancer is linked to improvements in many of the adverse effects of cancer and its treatments. An active lifestyle can help overcome fatigue, anxiety and depression, while protecting the heart, lungs and bones.

In some cases, being physically active has been shown to slow disease progression, improve survival and reduce the chance of recurrence.

Who is eligible to access Move More?

Anyone in Angus who has had a cancer diagnosis is eligible for support to be physically active through Move More ANGUSalive.
