Want to change lives with your skills? Join our team of volunteers.
There are more than 8 million people in the UK living with lung disease. We’re working to make sure all of them have access to the support they need. That’s a huge number of people affected, and we can’t do it alone.
Whether you have an hour, a day or a whole month to give, your time will have a real impact on the lives of the people we support.
It's all worth it
This year, over 2,200 people gave their time to help us continue to improve the lives of people affected by lung conditions, like Eileen from our Market Harborough support group.
“When I joined, I could see there was a need for volunteers, so I became one of the group’s secretaries. I really enjoy helping people and being involved in the group.
No two meetings are the same. We like a mixture of speakers and discussions at our meetings. We also plan larger outings together in the community. We are busy planning tai chi, mindfulness and first aid classes now.”
You could volunteer...
In our offices
Volunteer at our offices in London, Liverpool, Glasgow and Cardiff. You could join our research, fundraising, events or campaigning teams, get involved with our Helpline, or lend your support to our finance and admin teams to keep everything running smoothly.
By joining our Readers Panel
If you have a lung condition, or care for someone that does, you can join our Readers Panel to help us improve our health information. It’s a flexible volunteer role that involves reviewing our health information and sending us your feedback, as well as taking part in virtual workshops and focus groups.
By joining our campaigns
Our campaigns ask governments to make positive changes for better lung health. Join our campaigns so everyone can breathe clean air and receive good quality care and support.
