We are a locally based Support Group for people effected by Lung disease, their partners, carers, family and friends.
We were previously known as Breathe Easy Gloucester, then later became Gloucester & Cotswold Breathe Easy - Part of the British Lung Foundation. (BLF). During 2013 BLF reorganised due to financial pressures and Breathe Easy Gloucester & Cotswold closed. We had a strong membership base of over 30 members and we knew the importance of a support group, so we formed our new voluntary support group Lungs for Life in December 2013.
The aim of the group is to provide support, social events/ activities to promote the well being of individuals and to prevent isolation.
We have over the years formed very good links with the medical professions, and especially the Respiratory Community team, and Pulmonary Rehab services. Who throughout the year, join us and keep us up to date on latest therapies and on what is happening within their services.
This website is a new venture for us, and would not have been possible without funding from Gloucestershire Disability Fund who gave the group a grant towards promotion and advertising, and for assistance of a friend who has set up this website for us.
