iCan is a cancer rehabilitation programme which supports people living with and beyond cancer to increase physical activity levels and develop positive wellbeing for 12 months.

A new free face to face programme starts on April 9th at Plas Dolerw, Milford Road, Newtown, SY16 2EH (5 weeks, 10 x 1 hour sessions).  

The Online programme is next available from 26th March 2024.

The initial core programme runs over a five-week period and provides tailored exercises and mindfulness tools, delivered over 10 different sessions, each focussing on various aspects of life during or after cancer treatment. The sessions are delivered at community sites across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, and Powys, as well as online for you to attend from the comfort of your own home. Online resources can be accessed at any time, should you miss a session due to holiday or appointment, and you can contact the iCan staff directly for further assistance and support.

In addition to the initial five-week programme, iCan offers an additional mindfulness and cancer programme, delivered by a trained mindfulness practitioner over an additional five-week period, plus an additional six-week exercise programme.

Following on from the initial three months of iCan support, the iCan team offer regular phone calls, emails and coffee mornings to continue their support for 12 months. The iCan team are available to service users to suit individual needs.
