ENRICHing Survivorship

The ENRICHing Survivorship program is a free eight-week program that helps cancer survivors restore their physical and emotional health after active cancer treatment.

Sessions run for two hours and are facilitated by an exercise physiologist or physiotherapist, dietitian, yoga instructor and two Cancer Council trained volunteers who have had personal experience with cancer.

The program is made up of the following components:

  • Six sessions focus on exercise and nutrition to improve cancer health.
  • A relaxation session which introduces breath and movement practice, mindfulness meditation and techniques to reduce stress and anxiety.
  • A peer support session provides practical information, discussion and ideas about how to adjust to the changes following cancer treatment.
