Asthma UK’s mission is to stop asthma attacks and cure asthma. We do this by funding world leading research, campaigning for improved care and supporting people to reduce their risk of a potentially life-threatening asthma attack. As the UK’s leading asthma charity, we are entirely funded by voluntary donations.
Why we need your support:
5.4 million people in the UK have asthma, including 1.1 million children.
Every 10 seconds someone in the UK has a potentially fatal asthma attack.
Three people die every day from asthma attacks
Your generous donations make all the difference. They mean we can continue to:
Fund cutting-edge research across the UK to better understand the biology of asthma, improve diagnosis and care and work towards better treatments and a cure.
Offer life-changing advice and support to people with asthma, their parents, or carers on how to manage their condition and prevent a life-threatening asthma attack.
Campaign for change
Fight for change for people with asthma across the UK to get better treatment, care and support from the health services and governments.
