National Asthma Campaign

The National Asthma Campaign

The National Asthma Campaign is the independent charity working to conquer asthma, in partnership with people with asthma and all who share their concern, through a combination of research, education and support. The Campaign was formed in 1989 from a merger of the Asthma
Research Council (formed in 1927) and the Friends of the Asthma Research Council and Asthma Society (formed in 1980).

  • We are one of the largest funders of asthma research in the UK. Since 1990 we have invested £16 million directly into funding research and currently commit total funds approaching £2.5 million annually. We are proud to manage the NHS £5 million five-year National Research and Development Programme on Asthma Management

  • We are the UK's leading independent authority on asthma and provide the most up-to-date, medically accurate information for everyone concerned about asthma. Asthma nurse specialists on our Asthma Helpline (0845 7 01 02 03) provide confidential advice for the cost of a local call (UK only) and our range of publications include the award winning Asthma News

  • We are active in local communities throughout the UK through our network of branches, local contacts and our information centre in Cornwall

  • We are campaigning to ensure a better future for people with asthma. We recently successfully campaigned for measures to ban smoking in the workplace and are currently encouraging Government to adopt our model for a national co-ordinated approach to asthma care

  • We work with doctors and nurses and in partnership with other organisations to ensure the best care for people with asthma. We run a professional subscription scheme for health professionals and publish the quarterly, authoritative Asthma Journal

The National Asthma Campaign has offices in London and Edinburgh, an information centre covering Devon and Cornwall, and a number of volunteer-run local branches.
