We’re one of the leading UK charities dedicated to looking after the nation’s lungs. With your support, we’ll make sure that one day everyone breathes clean air with healthy lungs.

We offer hope through research - We've been researching lung conditions for 30 years. Today, it remains at the heart of what we do. Our aim is always to improve care - and to prevent, treat and cure lung diseases.

We help people affected by lung conditions - Having lung disease brings questions and anxiety about the future. We don't want anyone to face that alone. Our helpline, support groups, web community and easy-to-understand information offer vital hope and support.

Our campaigns give you a voice - We aim to prevent lung disease by campaigning for positive change in the UK's lung health. We're raising awareness about lung disease, the dangers that cause it, and how to look after your lungs.
