Campaign for cleaner air

We need to take action so everyone can breathe clean air with healthy lungs

Air pollution children

Many towns and cities across the UK have unsafe levels of air pollution from traffic fumes. Other sources like industry, farming and wood burning can also make the air dangerous for our health.

This pollution can make it harder for people with a lung condition to breathe and make their condition worse. It can also increase all our chances of getting a lung condition and cause lasting damage to children’s growing lungs.

Our research shows that over 2,000 hospitals or GP surgeries are in areas with dangerous levels of air pollution.

This pollution is a public health crisis.

We’re campaigning to change this. We need:

  • Clean air zones to be established across the UK in the most polluted places
  • New laws that set legal limits in line with the World Health Organisation’s safe limits
  • More monitoring outside schools, hospitals and GP surgeries in polluted places

We're working with decision-makers across the UK to make sure air pollution is prioritised and these policies are put in place.

We run the Clean Air Parents’ Network to bring parents and carers together to call for cleaner air for children across the country. Join the Clean Air Parents’ Network
