Fit for Life and Wellbeing

A nine week programme of support, exercise and activity aimed at looking after your mind, body and spirit.

When life alters there can be a multitude of strains and stresses on individuals and families. It can be helpful to learn about the support on offer and the tools available to help you to cope more effectively with your current circumstances.

At St Christopher’s we appreciate that living with a chronic, long term or terminal illness can be difficult. Fit for Life & Wellbeing is a free interactive course for anyone living in St Christopher’s catchment area who is suffering from a life limiting, long term, or chronic illness.
