We know that being active during and after cancer treatment improves both physical and emotional cancer outcomes and can reduce feelings of isolation.

However, we also know that many people affected by cancer feel nervous about building up activity levels.

Move More Dumfries and Galloway is a programme of activity specifically designed for people affected by cancer but is also suitable for those with a long term condition.
