These are free courses funded by Penny Brohn UK. We welcome your donations to help us support as many people as possible living with cancer.

We work in partnership with a range of organisations across Kirklees, including Kirklees Council, Greater Huddersfield & North Kirklees CCGs and local Macmillan Information Centres. Services are provided at community venues in Huddersfield and Mirfield and include Eating Well, Being Active, Managing Stress, Emotional Wellbeing and Living Well courses as well as Follow-up days. We also offer introductory talks to local support groups in the area.

We partner with and are funded by City Healthcare Partnership CIC, to deliver Living Well Services at NHS Centres and community venues across the city. We offer introductory sessions which focus on Eating Well, Being Active, Managing Stress and Emotional Wellbeing. There’s a bi-monthly Community Support Group and regular drop-in sessions. We also offer introductory talks to local groups in the area.

We work with the broader voluntary sector to support those wanting to ‘live well’ with cancer and reduce feelings of social isolation. Operating from community venues in Beverley, Hornsea and Bridlington, our services include Introduction Sessions, which provide support and information around Eating Well, Being Active, Managing Stress and Emotional Wellbeing; there’s also a bi-monthly Community Support Group at East Riding Community Hospital and Living Well Courses and Follow-up days. We also offer introductory talks to local groups.

We offer free sessions in Wakefield, including Introduction Sessions (Managing Stress and Emotional Wellbeing at Pinderfields Hospital) and the non-residential Living Well course. The Living Well course is made available through working in partnership with Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust and Macmillan Information Centres.

We offer our Living Well programme in York at the York Yoga Studio.

The aim of this service is to provide you with a broader tool-kit of self-care techniques that can help support your physical, emotional and spiritual health. You will learn about the different aspects of our approach; including information and discussion on healthy eating and physical activity. You will also explore the impact of cancer on your emotions and relationships as well as some of the practical issues. You will experience a wider range of self-help techniques including relaxation, meditation, mindfulness and imagery and find out more about the science behind our approach.

 You can also keep up-to-date with the latest services information for the Hull and East Riding area, and see regular updates from Penny Brohn UK, by following us on Twitter @PBUK_North or by joining our ‘Yorkshire & Humber’ Facebook group.
