Since the coronavirus outbreak, people with asthma have had their lives completely disrupted - they're frightened and confused.
It's only thanks to your kind donations that our team of expert asthma nurses can ensure everyone who contacts them feels safe and listened to. With your support the nurses can continue to offer reassurance, caring support and practical advice to everyone who needs it.
We can't do this without you
The lovely nurses at Asthma UK
completely changed my lockdown
Discovering I had to shield due to my asthma medication, made me very anxious. I never thought I was high-risk and the thought of being trapped at home for three months filled me with dread.
Unable to contact my GP for clarity about shielding, I really began to panic. That's when I saw a post online from Asthma UK. I soon discovered their Helpline had a WhatsApp service, which I immediately messaged.
A nurse soon messaged me back and completely changed my lockdown - and my mental health. Now Asthma UK is my go-to source for any information about my asthma.
