Case studies

<Back to Funding

Asthma UK involves over 150 people affected by asthma in our research programme to make sure that we're funding research that will benefit people with asthma.

Here, two of our volunteers share their experiences of getting involved in our research programme as Research and Policy (RaP) volunteers, why they feel that research is important and what they want research to achieve for people with asthma.

If you would like to recruit a RaP volunteer to your activity, you should read the section on our website on involving people with asthma in your study or project before completing an application form. Alternatively, please contact the Asthma UK Research Team at
