New national campaign puts the focus on long-term health conditions

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.

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 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.

Active Derbyshire are doing their part to promote the campaign by hosting a launch locally and sharing the stories of the We Are Undefeatable cast.
