Activity & Long-term Health Conditions

If you are worried about coronavirus and your underlying health or waiting for delayed treatment being active is one of the best things you can do to reduce health risks and improve both physical and mental wellbeing.

With a long-term health condition you may be shielding, isolating or finding it harder to get outside and being active may feel even more challenging at the moment and that's ok. Whether its dancing in your living room, stretching in the kitchen or doing a spot of gardening any kind of movement is beneficial.

Being active at a level that feels comfortable can help to manage, and in some cases even reverse a range of common health conditions. Increasing your activity levels is unlikely to make your health worse, but if you are concerned contact your GP or seek advice from a healthcare professional.

For the first time, many of the UKs leading charities are coming together to inspire and support people with health conditions to be active. We Are Undefeatable is a campaign supporting people with health conditions to be active through the ups and downs, celebrating every little victory, as well as their undefeatable spirit.
