iCan is managed and delivered by the team from Lifestyle Fitness & Physiotherapy, a 34-year-old Shrewsbury-based health and wellbeing company and is fully funded by Lingen Davies.
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.
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.
“We give people cancer specific advice. Our ethos is very much about mindfulness, it runs through every session. iCan is set up so that people can contact the Team and each other whenever they need to. Individualised support, information and programmes are also available for everyone to access, throughout iCan.”
