What we stand for

We want to see a world where everyone can breathe clean air with healthy lungs. To achieve this, we need the right policies in place from the government, the NHS and other health care bodies. 

We know that lung disease and the factors that cause it don’t always get the attention they deserve. We work with policy makers and politicians in Westminster, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and in local government to change this. 

A map for better care

Our report, making effective care pathways for people with interstitial lung disease, finds that many people living with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) still aren’t getting the diagnosis, support or care they need.
