COVID-19 has impacted all our lives. As a charity dedicated to changing the lives of everyone affected by asthma, it's put us in a perilous position and has devastated our ability to raise vital funds.
Now more than ever, people with asthma need our help and to be heard! They need our free health advice, our Helpline Nurses and the ground-breaking research that we fund. Asthma needs a voice!
To show how much you care about asthma and if you can, please donate today. Your support will help us continue to fight for everyone with asthma in the UK.
4 million more people now need us
Since the start of 2020, 6 million people have visited our website for free health advice and more - that's a whopping 4 million more people than last year*.
Key fundraising events cancelled
Despite record numbers of people needing our support because of COVID-19, many of our key Fundraising events, like the London Marathon, have been cancelled, devastating our ability to raise vital funds.
Future of Asthma UK
The future of asthma in the UK is at stake. Services such as our Helpline are vital for people with asthma. We need your help to ensure we can continue to be there for everyone who needs us.
Without your support - none of this is possible
Every year we provide millions of people with support and information to help them manage their asthma.
Your support funds cutting-edge asthma research giving hope for the future. Our research will help to better understand asthma, find new treatments, improve diagnosis and one-day cure asthma.
Asthma UK makes sure the voices of people with asthma are heard by the Government and the NHS. We want people with asthma to have the birghtest possible future.
We can't do this without you
Thanks to Asthma UK's supporters my life has been extended.
I've been admitted to hospital 48 times because of my asthma. My asthma was spiralling out of control and my GP told me I was unlikely to make it to 50 unless I lost weight. That day, I spoke with a nurse on the Asthma UK Helpline. Following this, I changed my medication and lost seven stone. I've not had an asthma attack for the last three and half years.
