Any woman who has experienced breast cancer at any stage of her life.


YWCA Encore welcomes anyone who has experienced breast cancer or related surgery.


Whether your breast cancer surgery and/or treatment is recent or was many years ago, you can still benefit from our exercise program. Women of all ages and fitness levels take part.

You will need to wait at least eight weeks after surgery before starting the program. If you are between six and eight weeks post-surgery you may be able to participate with approval from your doctor. 

All participants require medical approval from either your treating specialist or GP if treatment is completed.

Please contact the Encore administrator on to be sent a copy of the medical approval form.
