Self referral link for the CARE programme

Notts County FC Football in the Community work in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to deliver this incredibly effective cancer rehabilitation & exercise programme. CARE uses physical activity to help patients during their recovery.

The CARE programme not only provides participants with the benefits of physical exercise, it is also a social environment where members can share stories, and increase their confidence and self-esteem during a difficult period in their lives.

Participants are welcomed on to our CARE programme at any time throughout their cancer journey; from diagnosis, during treatment or recovery and through to remission, meaning they can benefit from the programme before, throughout and after treatment.
