Trekstock gets you moving again when cancer puts your life on hold

We provide practical and social support programmes tailored to the needs of young adults in their 20s and 30s, to give you a better chance of living well through and beyond cancer. All of our programmes are developed in collaboration with the people we support and work to improve your physical and psychological wellbeing, quality of life and provide you with the tools you need to get moving again. 

We recognise that each of you will experience cancer differently, therefore we offer tailored exercise support, practical advice and an active online and offline community.

"Got home to this lovely surprise. Thank you Trekstock for my pack and the support you provide. It's nice to know you're not alone." 

How we can support you

If you're interested in meeting others and getting moving again, here are the ways in which we can support you: 

Exercise (physical activity)

We offer a 1-2-1 exercise programme, regular yoga classes and exercise videos you can do from your home. Our exercise support programmes are delivered by Cancer Rehabilitation qualified instructors. Find out more on our getting you moving pages.

"I’m just on my way home from Trekstock’s restorative yoga in London. It was the best thing I have done for myself this year. I didn’t realise how tight and tense my body had become. I’ve left feeling refreshed, stretched and so calm. I can not recommend it enough!"

Practical advice

We provide practical advice about the things that matter to young adults, such as work, fertility and anxiety – head to our 'living with cancer' section for more information. We have regular live Q&A sessions with experts through our Trekstock Talks

"Having cancer at a young age throws you into a world of unknowns and Trekstock Talks makes that world a little less scary by offering insights into the darkness that young adults are facing."

Online community

Going through cancer can be a very lonely and isolating experience. Over the years we've created a safe, welcoming and private online community of hundreds of people who have been through similar experiences. It's somewhere where you can ask difficult questions, seek support and share advice. The group is accessed through a private Facebook page that can be found here.

"I found it fantastic to chat with other people my age who got what it's like."

Meet ups and events 

Our fun and welcoming regional social meet ups and events, enable you to connect with others who know what it's like to have experienced cancer. 

All of our events are either led by Trekstock or our regional Champions who have experienced cancer and plus 1's are always welcome to come along with you. 

Head to our events page to find out what's happening across the UK. No event near you? Join us online to connect with others that way or get in touch with our health team at [email protected], if you'd like to host a meet up near you. 

"Nice to have a laugh and chat with others who know what it's like going through cancer. It felt more like meeting up for lunch with friends - warm, fun and supportive."
