Learning about breathlessnessBreathlessness affects 10 per cent of the UK population and up to 30 per cent of older people? But many people assume being out of breath regularly is just part of getting older. They might not realise it's actually a symptom of a lung condition.

We're campaigning to raise awareness of breathlessness so people will seek help for symptoms sooner. You don't have to live with it - there's plenty of help out there so you can keep active and enjoy life.
