"We Are Undefeatable" is a movement supporting people with a range of long term health conditions, developed by 15 leading health and social care charities. The purpose is to support and encourage finding ways to be active that work with each person's conditions, not against them.
There are plenty of ways that you can get moving without needing to leave your house.
Activities you can do at home vary greatly and include very low-intensity options for moving more. Chair exercises, for instance, allow you to move and stretch your body while sitting down, making them suitable for most people.
