Find out how the Untire self-help app can support people living with cancer to manage fatigue and regain their energy.

What is Untire?

The Untire app is a step-by-step programme to help reduce cancer-related fatigue and address the things that may be causing it. The app uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques and physical exercise to help people manage fatigue. It is self-guided, so you can decide in which order and at what pace you want to do the programme.

Untire has been developed by Tired of Cancer, a Dutch social enterprise. The service is approved by the NHS and features in the NHS Apps Library.

How does Untire work?

Untire's daily step-by-step programme includes tips, advice, stress-reducing exercises, physical activities and educational content to help people who have cancer-related fatigue.

The features include:

  • finding information to understand fatigue, and learning about anxiety, worry, sleep, self-care and nutrition
  • accessing daily tips and reminders to improve your lifestyle, and access audio and video guides about your condition
  • learning mind and body exercises to increase energy levels
  • joining private online support communities
  • receiving weekly reports to help track progress and energy levels.

Untire is suitable for anyone who has been diagnosed with or is recovering from cancer, their family, friends and carers.
