British Lung Foundation

Lung disease affects more than 12 million people across the UK. We’re here for every one of them.

Research

Over the past three decades, we have spent more than £24 million on research to increase survival rates, improve diagnosis, treatment and care, and develop our understanding of lung diseases.

We also support today’s young scientists to encourage them to develop their careers in the field of respiratory research.

Prevention and campaigning

We campaign for better services and care for people with lung conditions and spread the word about the causes and signs of lung disease and how to prevent it.

We fight to keep the issues that matter on the political agenda – from protecting children against second-hand smoke to calling for more research funding.

Supporting patients and families

We bring people with lung disease together through our support groups, web community and penpals scheme, while our nurses and fitness instructors support people in their communities.

Our high-quality health information is produced under NHS England’s Information Standard scheme so you know it’s trustworthy and up to date – and our specialist nurses and advisers are just a phone call away.

Supporting health care professionals

We help health care professionals to provide the best possible care for their patients, improve accessibility of services and ensure patients’ views are taken on board.

We also run workshops and provide tools to help health care professionals provide their patients with the vital information they need.

Albert Rollinson

After losing my wonderful Dad Albert Rollinson in December 2013, after a long battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Emphysema, I felt I needed to do something positive in his memory. Chris and I have always wanted to run the London Marathon and it felt a fitting tribute to run in his memory for the charity he supported, The British Lung Foundation.
