Who we are and what we do
What we do
We challenge complacency and campaign to improve the quality of care received by people with asthma.
Who we are
Asthma UK is a membership-based charity with a current membership of approximately 5,200. We have a long history, stretching all the way back to 1927, when the Asthma Research Council was founded after the Earl of Limerick wrote to The Times.
How we run
Asthma UK is governed by a Council of Trustees, chaired by John Tucker. Council sets the strategic direction of the charity, ensuring the charity achieves its objectives whilst upholding the charity’s values. The day to day running of the Charity is the responsibility of the Senior Leadership Team.
