Fighting Pulmonary Fibrosis and Infection

Breathing Matters’ mission is to improve the lives of every pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis and respiratory/lung infection sufferer by finding treatments and cures through raising funds and awareness.

We support research carried out at UCL Respiratory, one of the world’s leading research centres for respiratory diseases. Breathing Matters is part of UCLH Charity (registered charity #1165398).

Founded in 2011, we have elected to run our small charity on minimal overheads so that money raised can be focused on medical research.

Breathing Matters funds research into Interstitial Lung Diseases such as Pulmonary Fibrosis, and Respiratory Infections such as Bronchiectasis and Pneumonia – all of these are currently under-funded in the UK.

We encourage supporters to become actively involved as advocates, advisors and fundraisers.
