Fundraising for Schools and Youth

If you’re a teacher, parent or pupil and would like your school or youth group to fundraise for Asthma UK, we have plenty of ideas, tips and materials to help support you

One in 11 children in the UK has asthma, which is around 3 in every classroom. Asthma’s common, but it can also be serious: sadly, every 10 seconds someone in the UK has an asthma attack. This is why Asthma UK’s work is so important.

How you can help

Whether it’s at school, university, or another type of youth club like Brownies you can fundraise to help us! The money you raise goes directly towards helping people with asthma – so we can fund world-class research, campaign to improve the quality of care received by people with asthma and provide expert information and advice through our website and Helpline.
