Charlie Crane from Active Partnerships national team said
“We are excited about the power of this campaign to galvanise the sector to work together to support individuals with a long-term medical condition to be more active. From our perspective, ensuring that the sport and physical activity workforce have the right skills and behaviours to provide a welcoming, enjoyable and high-quality experience to participants, especially those re-establishing or starting a new relationship with sport and physical activity through this campaign is critical. Our network of Active Partnerships are already doing some great work to support this campaign locally and we look forward to using the Coaching Guide to further support our local workforces across England”
About the Campaign
Led by a collaboration of 15 leading health and social care charities, We Are Undefeatable aims to help people with long-term health conditions build physical activity into their lives, in a way that their condition allows, and to celebrate every victory big or small.
The campaign seeks to inspire, reassure and support people to be active by showing people living with a variety of conditions – both visible and invisible – on their own journeys to being active, in a way that suits their needs.
The campaign is backed with expertise, insight and National Lottery funding from Sport England, the organisation behind the award-winning This Girl Can campaign and is part of the sports council's longer-term drive to change cultural and social norms around long-term health conditions and physical activity; helping more people get active in a way that’s right for them.
