We Are Undefeatable in Hertfordshire

We Are Undefeatable in Hertfordshire is the local activation of the national movement led by the Herts Sports and Physical Activity Partnership (HSP). The local movement seeks to achieve all of the same outcomes as the national campaign but with a specific focus on upskilling local workforces to improve the inclusivity of physical activity opportunities for those living with long-term health conditions. It does this by:

  1. Raising awareness of the benefits and challenges associated with being physically active with long-term health conditions
  2. Providing learning and upskilling opportunities to the local workforce to improve knowledge and practice
  3. Creating meaningful local connections to the 15 health and wellbeing charities associated to the national movement either through the national We Are Undefeatable movement, or directly.
  4. Where possible, providing resources to develop new inclusive physical activity opportunities as required.

We Are Undefeatable in Hertfordshire was launched on March 10th, 2023, with a virtual conference containing seven webinars. You can see the recordings of these below.

Physical activity & long-term health conditions resource packs

Alongside We Are Undefeatable, the Richmond Group of Charities have developed a series of Physical Activity and Long-Term Health Conditions Resource Packs aimed at the sport and physical activity sector, health and care organisations and the health and care workforce.

The aims of the packs and their supplementing resources are to:

  • encourage health and care professionals with long-term health conditions to be active.
  • help ensure consistent, person-centred conversations about physical activity are a routine part of health and care interactions.
  • see supportive, inclusive and accessible physical activity opportunities and facilities prioritised by the sport, leisure and physical activity sector.

Access the resource packs.
