LGFB is dedicated to improving the wellbeing and self-confidence of people undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.

Research suggests that walking is possibly the single most effective and accessible forms of physical activity, and health professionals now recommend that everyone should aim to do 30 minutes of moderate exercise (such as walking) at least five times a week. Because walking is such an accessible form of exercise it is particularly beneficial to those who are getting little or no exercise, recovering from illness, or lacking in confidence. Many of the walks are also wheelchair and buggy-friendly.

Our Vision is to improve the quality of life for carers in Brighton & Hove by providing services for carers to help them cope with their situation, getting the support to which they are entitled, and to participate in the community of our city. We campaign to raise awareness of carers and ensure that carers have a real voice in order to influence local public services. We aim to improve the support offered to carers and to the people they care for and to promote support for families that reduces the reliance on children as carers.
