Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)

Support for IPF

We have lots of support available for people living with IPF, from support groups to our helpline, and our pulmonary fibrosis passports. 

Pulmonary fibrosis support groups 

Being diagnosed and living with a lung condition can be challenging. Our support groups can help you to make new friends with people who know what you’re going through. You can also get lots of useful information about pulmonary fibrosis.
