The BLF funds research to improve care and to prevent, treat and cure lung diseases. They've been researching lung conditions for 30 years. Today, it remains at the heart of what they do. 

Having lung disease brings questions and anxiety about the future. They don't want anyone to face that alone. Their helpline, support groups, web community and easy-to-understand information offer vital hope and support.

They aim to prevent lung disease by campaigning for positive change in the UK's lung health. They're raising awareness about lung disease, the dangers that cause it, and how to look after your lungs.
