Sport England and 15 health and social care charities have launched the 'We Are Undefeatable' campaign to encourage millions of people with long-term health conditions to get active.

An estimated one in four (15 million) people in England live with one or more long-term health conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, arthritis and Parkinson’s. They are twice as likely to be inactive despite evidence that even small amounts of activity can significantly improve overall health and well-being.

The campaign aims to challenge misconceptions that people with long-term health conditions can’t be physically active. Insight from the campaign indicates that living with a long-term health condition can feel unpredictable and make it difficult to be physically active. The campaign seeks to empower people to build activity into their lives in small and achievable chunks, in a way that suits them.

The following AMRC charities are involved in the campaign: Alzheimer’s Society, Asthma UK, Breast Cancer Now, British Lung Foundation, Diabetes UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, MS Society, Parkinson’s UK, Stroke Association and Versus Arthritis.
