People with lung conditions and those who care for them can often feel alone. Getting support from people who are also living with lung disease is important and Breathe Easy provides a good opportunity for that to happen.
Many of our groups provide an opportunity to learn more about your lung condition by providing useful leaflets and literature as well as organising guest speakers for their meetings.
We have groups that meet in many different towns and cities in the UK. Through events like Breathe Easy Week, groups also work hard to raise awareness of lung disease and the problems it can cause.
Campaigning for breathless people
Many people with lung disease, and their carers, face a daily battle to live a relatively normal life. Breathe Easy supporters strengthen the voice of everyone living with lung disease by lobbying local politicians and health providers. They campaign to improve services and make people take lung disease seriously. Breathe Easy is represented on government bodies, and has had a real impact on services for people with lung disease. A brief history of Breathe Easy.
Spare some time to help
There are many opportunities for volunteers to work with the British Lung Foundation and Breathe Easy.
If anyone would like to offer their time to help with a committee role or as a volunteer with a Breathe Easy Group committee, no qualifications needed, and just a few hours each month is all the commitment required. Perhaps you have some good contacts that would be willing to give a talk to the group or you have an outgoing personality and would be happy to welcome members at the meetings. You may not even have a lung condition, we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers who may be able to offer a few hours in your local area. Why not give us a call. Please contact a BLF regional office.
