1 in 5 people in the UK will develop a lung condition at some point in their lifetime. That means 1 in 5 of us will struggle due to the difficulties of something so many of us take for granted – breathing. Our aim is to bring hope, help and a voice to everyone affected. We do this by funding world-class research, providing expert up-to-date health advice and by campaigning to make lung health a priority across the UK.
Why we need your support.

Fund world-class research to find better treatments and cures for lung diseases.
Campaign for positive change in the UK's lung health, raising awareness about lung disease, the dangers that cause it, and how to look after your lungs.
