  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to improve the lives of everyone affected by Bronchiectasis. We do this by investing in research, improving awareness and understanding of the condition and providing information and support to all those affected.
    Improving the lives of people with Bronchiectasis is central to everything we do. We want everyone with the condition to live as full and unlimited a life as possible, until we find a cure.

    Being there for our community when they need us is paramount - we do this through our helpline and our online platforms. We aim in the near future to run a yearly conference to bring people together.
    We are driven to make real progress towards more effective treatments a better quality of life and ultimately a cure. To invest in innovative research projects at the forefront of the field.

    We also aim to make our voices heard with decision-makers within the NHS, pushing Bronchiectasis further up the health and social care agenda. The lack of awareness, late diagnosis and often years of wrong diagnosis ''Asthma in the case of many'' is simply not acceptable in the year 2016.
