Asthma UK Cymru


Rates of asthma in Wales are among the highest in the world: more than 314,000 people with the condition live in Wales (1 in 10 adults), including 59,000 children (1 in 9 children).

Asthma UK Cymru was established in 2005, in line with political devolution. We recognised that Wales is developing its own systems, structures and priorities and that having local staff would enable the charity to work more effectively for people with asthma in Wales.

The specialist local knowledge within our small team helps us to:

  • Understand the issues that matter to people in Wales and identify how we can help.
  • Build partnerships with the people and bodies that can help us to make a difference.
  • Maintain specialist knowledge of the health service in Wales and know how to influence it.
  • Ensure that people with asthma are represented where decisions are made that affect them, especially at the Welsh Government and the National Assembly for Wales.
