Our Nominated Charity 2022-2023
Imagine not being able to catch your breath whilst doing the simplest of tasks - making your bed, talking on the telephone, mopping the kitchen floor.
Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are a group of diseases that lead to lung damage and ultimately fibrosis (scarring) with loss of the elasticity of the lungs. There are more than 100 ILDs, which are chronic, long-term conditions characterised by worsening shortness of breath.
Breathing Matters support research carried out at UCLH and UCL Respiratory, one of the world’s leading research centres for respiratory diseases. The charity was launched 10 years ago with a view to focusing on research into ILDs and lung infection. Their mission is to raise awareness and inspire fundraising for research into pulmonary fibrosis and lung infection, and to improve the lives of every pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis and lung infection patient by funding vital research into treatments and cures, and by improving awareness and knowledge of these conditions. Their philosophy is to ensure every pound raised is directed towards research, not overheads, with 99% directed straight to research in 2019/20.
Breathing Matters is currently supporting the Urgent Public Health national study investigating the long term effects of Covid-19. The study aims to improve understanding of the impact of Covid-19 on hospitalised patients in the UK. More information on research projects can be found in their 2021 Impact Report: https://www.breathingmatters.co.uk/impact-report
