We Are Undefeatable is a national campaign and movement to inspire and support people with long-term health conditions to be active. Featuring the real-life experiences of people with long-term health conditions, We Are Undefeatable aims to support people to build physical activity into their lives, in a way that their condition allows.
Over 1 in 4 people live with at least one long-term health condition and these numbers are rising. You are twice as likely to be inactive if you have a health condition, however being active can help to manage over 20 long-term conditions such as depression and type 2 diabetes; it reduces the risk of developing some conditions by up to 40% and can delay the onset of and reduce the severity of many health conditions.
The campaign is led by 15 of the major health and social care charities and is backed by expertise, insight and significant National Lottery funding from Sport England, the organisation behind the award-winning This Girl Can campaign. The campaign is part of a longer-term drive by Sport England to change cultural and social norms around long term-conditions and physical activity and to help more people get active in a way that's right for them.
The charities are: Age UK, Alzheimer's Society, Asthma UK, Breast Cancer Care Breast Cancer Now, British Lung Foundation, British Red Cross, Diabetes UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, Mind, MS Society, Parkinson's UK, Rethink Mental Illness, Royal Voluntary Service, Stroke Association and Versus Arthritis.
