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.
Our team are here to help, we understand that how you feel can change from day to day, and sometimes that can make moving feel like more of a challenge. That is perfectly okay, the truth is you can start small, ultimately, being active is about finding what works for you.
If you live with a long term health condition and would like more support to be active, join our new local programme in support of the 'We Are Undefeatable' campaign.
Contact our project lead Sonia Carty by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07795 813196.
Lines are open from 10am to 2pm, you can leave a message outside of those times and we will get back to you.
As we are being asked to stay at home more than usual, it is more important then ever to stay active. Our team can work with you on helping you be active during this time.
The national campaign 'We Are Undefeatable', supported by 15 leading health and social care charities, aims to inspire and support people living with health conditions to build physical activity into their lives, in a way that their condition allows, and to celebrate every victory big or small.
The campaign is inspired by, and features, the real-life experiences of people with health conditions getting active despite the ups, downs and unpredictability of their condition. Read more information on the 'We Are Undefeatable' website.
