One in 3 adults in England live with a long-term health condition and they are twice as likely to be amongst the least physically active. However, evidence shows that regular physical activity can help prevent or manage many common conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some cancers. It also helps keep symptoms under control, prevent additional conditions from developing, and reduce inequalities.

Regular physical activity provides a range of physical and mental health, and social benefits, many of which are increasing issues for individuals, communities and society.


These include:

  • reducing the risk of many long-term conditions

  • helping manage existing conditions

  • ensuring good musculoskeletal health

  • developing and maintaining physical and mental function and independence

  • supporting social inclusion

  • helping maintain a healthy weight

  • reducing inequalities for people with long-term conditions
