We Are Undefeatable

We are making a big noise about getting more active as part of the We Are Undefeatable campaign.

1 in 3 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 long-term health condition, however being active can help to manage over 20 long-term conditions such as COPD, bronchiectasis, IPF and asthma.

We have joined up with 15 leading health and social care charities to launch this national campaign to inspire and support people with long-term health conditions to be active.

Get active

You can get active in many ways. You can increase everyday activities like walking or gardening or join a virtual class like yoga, dancing and tai chi.

Ian's story

"It's almost like you've oiled all the joints and you've stretched everything out. Then you can do things."

Ian lives with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). It means that his lungs work at 45% the capacity of a healthy person's. He may get short of breath, but his home work-outs help him keep up his fitness and manage his lung condition.
