Support for Chest Conditions

5,000 Breathing Better/ Respiratory programme sessions were delivered in 2018/19

Supporting people living with chest conditions

If you’re living with a respiratory condition, then our Breathing Better team is here to help you with whatever challenges you may be facing. Whether it’s providing information and advice on your condition to relieve worry and confusion or helping you to connect with others in similar situations, we’re here to help you get back on your feet.

Our range of services can help to improve both your mental and physical wellbeing, making you feel more like yourself again.

Family Support Service

Our team of friendly Family Support Coordinators is here to provide practical advice and support to anyone living with a respiratory condition. When we call you for an initial assessment, we’ll listen carefully to everything you have to say, taking the time to understand your specific circumstances so we can create a tailor-made support plan that best suits your needs.

We provide:

  • Information and advice on living with a respiratory condition or caring for someone with a respiratory condition
  • A listening ear and emotional support
  • Signposting to other local services that can help
  • A key point of contact
  • A Fast-track Referral to Advice Space for support with benefits
  • Support in liaising with your healthcare professionals
