Fit for Life

Join us for a six-week programme of exercise and support, to help look after your mind, body and spirit.

Living with a life-limiting, long-term or chronic illness can place extra stresses and strains on you and your family. Join us in a friendly and welcoming environment where you can take part in a supervised exercise session, learn about the types of support on offer, and ways to help you to cope more effectively.

Fit for Life is a free, six week course for anyone who is living with a life-limiting, long-term, or chronic illness, and who lives in St Christopher’s catchment area. You do not have to be already using our services, and you can sign up to a course based in either Sydenham or Orpington. Please get in touch to find out more or book your place on 020 8768 4500.
