What is Move More?
ANGUSalive is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to develop Move More across Angus. Move More Scotland is part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s national campaign to support people affected by cancer to find an activity that is right for them, with individually tailored health behaviour change support to continue to be active. The programme aims to ensure that people living with cancer are supported to become physically active, both before, during, and after their treatment. In addition to our established programme of activities, we now include cancer specific opportunities: Gentle Movement, walking, gardening, and circuit-based exercise classes.
Who is eligible to access Move More?
Anyone in Angus who has had a cancer diagnosis is eligible for support to be physically active through Move More ANGUSalive.

BE ACTIVE….live well
ANGUSalive has a well-established programme of physical activities aimed at those with a health condition; at the older adult; and/or those who haven’t exercised before and don’t know where to start. If you would like to refer or signpost anyone not affected by cancer but who could benefit from support to be more physically active, the same referral form can be used. Completed forms should be handed in to the sports facility where the person wants to participate, or emailed to the relevant contact (details of which are on the back page of the referral form).
Please note that this form replaces all previous referral forms for accessing the ANGUSalive long term conditions programme and should be used for referrals into Move More, and the BE ACTIVE..live well programme.
