Description

One person in five in the UK is affected by lung disease. Millions more are at risk. We are here for every one of them, leading the fight against lung disease.

We support people affected by lung disease, so that no one has to face it alone.

We promote greater understanding of lung disease and we campaign for change in the nation’s lung health.

We fund vital research so that new treatments and cures can help to save lives.

We support people affected by lung conditions
We reach out to people who are frightened and debilitated by lung disease, from mild asthma to lung cancer.

We have more than 230 Breathe Easy support groups across the UK. These are local groups where you can go to meet other people affected by lung disease and find out more about conditions. Our groups also work together to campaign for change.

Details of your nearest Breathe Easy group can be found by contacting the BLF Helpline on 03000 030 555. The Helpline is manned by a team of specialist nurses and advisers who can assist you with a wealth of information.
We offer information and support on a number of subjects including Travel & Transport, Oxygen, Equipment, Welfare Benefits, as well as many issues relating to over 40 lung conditions.
