We Are Undefeatable
We Are Undefeatable is a ground-breaking campaign that celebrates people living with long term conditions who are moving more, in ways that work for them. For the first time ever, many of the UK's leading charities are coming together to inspire and encourage people with health conditions to be active.
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.
Why has the campaign been created?
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. For the first time ever, 15 leading health and social care charities are launching a national campaign and movement to inspire and support people with health conditions to be active.
Who are the charities?
The charities are: Age UK, Asthma UK, Alzheimer's Society, Breast Cancer Care/Breast Cancer Now, British Lung Foundation, British Red Cross, Parkinson's UK, Diabetes UK, Macmillan, Mind, MS Society, Rethink Mental Illness, Royal Voluntary Service, Stroke Association, and Versus Arthritis.
Resources for keeping active
