Wirral Leisure is proud to announce the launch of its community We Are Undefeatable programme.

Running in partnership with Sport England and the national campaign for We Are Undefeatable this new initiative is aimed at people who are living with a long term health condition and would like more support to be active.

Headed up by Sonia Carty who has worked for Wirral Council for 16 years. Passionate about our local residents with health conditions in finding what works for them to start to be more active.

‘Seeing the smiles on the faces of others as they achieve even the smallest of goals is quite simply…….why I do what I do’

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.

As we’re being asked to stay at home more than usual, it’s 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 16 of the 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 here .
