Asthma UK

Every 10 seconds someone in the UK has a potentially fatal asthma attack. Every single day the lives of three families are devastated by the death of a loved one from asthma. 

Tragically, the majority of these deaths could be prevented right now with the right basic care. However, others still suffer with asthma so severe that current treatments don’t work. This has to change. That’s why Asthma UK exists.

What we do

We work to stop asthma attacks and, ultimately, cure asthma by funding world leading research and scientists, campaigning for change and supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life threatening asthma attack.

If you have asthma, or you are a parent of a child with asthma our website has online information on a range of topics including:

  • Understanding asthma
  • Asthma triggers
  • Asthma and your child
  • Diagnosing asthma
  • Manage your asthma
  • Inhalers, medicines and treatments
  • Asthma attacks
  • Severe asthma
  • Living with asthma
