Brighter Outlook

Welcome to Brighter Outlook - free, personalised physical activity for people living with and beyond cancer in Brighton and Hove.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer and live in Brighton and Hove, our specialist activity coaches are here to help you. Brighter Outlook offers free, specialist support to help you get active, stay active and feel good through cancer and beyond.

Taking part in physical activity during and after cancer treatment can play a huge part in enabling you to take back control and support your recovery.

Research has shown that staying active is safe in most cases of cancer. The benefits can include less fatigue, improved mood, increased strength and fitness, reduced risk of cancer progression and decreased risk of recurrence.

Being active to recommended levels can also help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight and help to reduce the risk of other health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.
