We're delighted to be able to share how our involvement has been beneficial to researchers and how working in partnership with Asthma UK has had a positive impact on multiple projects in several different ways.
"Involving Asthma UK from the start really helped us guide the application, and ensure we were able to include appropriate PPI. As the project is focusing on paediatric severe asthma, we were able to show in the application how we would build a paediatric network with Asthma UK and involve children. I believe this really helped strengthen our application, and ensure successful funding."

Delivery of PPI activities
"Working with Asthma UK allowed us to involve patients with asthma very early in the programme, and helped shaped the research question. The RASP-UK PIP (Patient Input Platform), led by Asthma UK, has had a positive impact on the programme. We really look forward to continue to work with Asthma UK for the remainder of the programme and after."

Research and Policy (RaP) Bulletin
"Being able to advertise on the Asthma UK’s Research and Policy Bulletin really helped with my response rate for my survey on personalised asthma management. Without it I wouldn’t have gotten the number of patient responses I needed!"
- Mario Quinde, Middlesex University
"Working on a new initiative for the Springer Nature journal Pulmonary Therapy, I reached out to Asthma UK to find patient experts interested in co-writing an article together with a physician. Although I was only looking for three volunteers to share their experiences and story, after being shared in the Research and Policy Bulletin I was pleasantly surprised to get eight individuals. An excellent way to reach patients and to help share their experiences!"
