Healthy eating and regular exercise can improve cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, stamina, self-esteem and quality of life. Exercise can also reduce fatigue, nausea, pain, anxiety and depression.

ENRICH is delivered by a qualified Exercise Physiologist/Physiotherapist and a Dietitian for 2 hours per week over 6 weeks. We provide you with exercise equipment and a workbook and being part of a group helps motivate you to improve.

ENRICHing Survivorship: We are currently trialing a new program comprised of eight, two hour, face to face, weekly sessions. The ENRICHing Survivorship Program is made up of the following components:

  • Six sessions focus on exercise and nutrition to improve cancer health (ENRICH). These sessions are co-facilitated by an exercise physiologist/physiotherapist and a dietitian.
  • A yoga and mindfulness session introduces relaxation breathing techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety.
  • A peer support session provides practical information, discussion and ideas about how to adjust to the changes following cancer treatment.

Eligibility: The program is available to people over 18 who have completed active cancer treatment. For people diagnosed with certain cancer types requiring long term treatment the program is available provided the participant is feeling well and able to physically participate.  A carer, partner or family member is welcome to attend with the cancer survivor.
