The effects of asthma can be devastating. Every day, the lives of three families are devastated by the death of a loved one to an asthma attack, and tragically two thirds of these deaths are preventable.
We rely on donations from our incredible supporters to fund ground breaking research projects that help us to understand asthma, improve current treatments and discover new ways to control symptoms. We also rely on gifts from supporters to fund the Asthma UK Helpline. Our nurses provide independent confidential advice and support to people with asthma and their families, friends and carers. We also offer advice and support to healthcare professionals.
