The Stroke Association has joined 14 other health and social care charities to launch 'We Are Undefeatable'. This national campaign and movement aims to inspire and support people with long-term health conditions to be active.

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 long-term health conditions.
The We Are Undefeatable campaign is inspired by, and features, the real-life experiences of people with long-term health conditions getting active despite the ups, downs and unpredictability of their condition. It aims to 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.
Our chief executive, Juliet Bouverie, is the lead campaign spokesperson. “Whether you lose your breath from playing with the grandchildren or going for a brisk walk, this campaign is about enjoying being active on the good days and getting through the bad. I’m hugely excited about helping more people living with a health condition feel that physical activity is possible, with lots of ideas about the ways that you can keep moving.” 
brand new website will provide inspiration, reassurance and support. You can follow the campaign on FacebookInstagram and Twitter and watch more videos on YouTube.
Sport England has invested £5m of National Lottery funding in the campaign, creating a series of informative and uplifting films that will reach millions of people. The Stroke Association has supported the development of the overall campaign as part of our commitment to getting people active.
The other charities involved are: Age UK, Alzheimer’s Society, Asthma UK, Breast Cancer Care/Breast Cancer Now, British Lung Foundation, British Red Cross, Parkinson’s, Diabetes UK, Macmillan, MS Society, Rethink Mental Illness, Royal Voluntary Service, Versus Arthritis and Mind.
