We Are Undefeatable

We Are Undefeatable is a Sport England national campaign.

Proud to be part of the movement

Active Sussex is proud to be part of the “We Are Undefeatable” movement supporting people with a range of long term health conditions, developed by 16 leading health and social care charities and backed by expertise, insight and significant National Lottery funding from Sport England. The purpose of the campaign is to support and encourage finding ways to be active that work with each person’s conditions, not against them.

Being undefeatable is understanding that how people feel can change from day-to-day, that everybody’s situation is unique, and that moving more when you can is just as important as accepting when you can’t. We believe that every achievement, no matter how small it might seem to someone else, is worth celebrating.

When it comes to finding ways to move, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. In fact, there are many, many ways to be active, including some that people may not realise actually count.

How to get involved in the campaign

Make Your Move

A new series of videos have been produced to support people with health conditions to move more.

The series – Make Your Move – aims to support people to be active at home and is available on DVD and on YouTube. The charities hope the DVD and online videos will motivate people to be active in a way that works for them, using simple and varied instructed activities that are designed to improve strength, balance, coordination and energy and reduce stress, and are suitable for a variety of activity levels.

There are 6 different physical activity sessions, each around 15 minutes long with a chance to take pauses throughout, and no specialist equipment needed. Each one can be tried independently of the others, in any order. No experience or knowledge of a specific activity is needed.
