We want to spread the word about the seriousness of asthma and the work Asthma UK is doing to cure asthma and stop asthma attacks. We know how vital the media is in raising awareness and we’re keen to help in any way we can. We can offer you press releases and statements and up-to-date statistics, experts who can speak about asthma, infographics, and we can help put you in touch with our celebrity supporters and people with asthma who want to share their stories.
