What we do:

Asthma UK is the charity dedicated to improving the health and well-being of the 5.2 million people in the UK who have asthma. We work with people with asthma, healthcare professionals and researchers to develop and share expertise to help people increase their understanding and reduce the effect of asthma on their lives.

10% of all children have been diagnosed by a doctor as having asthma. Every seven hours somebody dies from asthma, yet 90% of these deaths are preventable. At Asthma UK we are working to prevent these deaths by understanding more about the causes of asthma and to free people with asthma from its effects.

Asthma UK funds nearly £3m of asthma research every year, and is funded by voluntary donations. Please support us in our vision of Control over asthma today, freedom from asthma tomorrow.
