Wales has a proud and rich indust​rial heritage, and is characterised by the spirit of its people and the togetherness of its ​communities.

But it also suffers disproportionately from lung disease – that’s where we come in. The BLF in Wales was established in 2005 and works for the one in five people across the nation affected by lung conditions and their families.

People with poor lung health are always at the heart of everything we do. Not only do we fight for them, we offer them support through our Breathe Easy groups. Breathe Easy offers friendship and support to anybody affected by a lung condition, and also to those who are looking after somebody who is.

Visit our Breathe Easy pages to find your local group, or enter your postcode on our In Your Area page to find events, nurses, classes and more near you.

Wherever possible, we strive to ensure that the information we provide is available bilingually. We now offer all our health information in both English and Welsh.

That’s how we can help you. You can help to support our work by donating to the BLF Wales.
