Are you living with breathlessness or caring for someone who is?

We can support you in living with breathlessness at our informal Breathing Space sessions for patients and carers. We will answer your questions, demonstrate helpful techniques and guide you through symptom management.

Our Virtual Breathing Space session is a monthly group that provides a mixture of education, exercise, peer support and relaxation to help those struggling with breathlessness to be able to cope with this very debilitating symptom.

Who can attend?

The group is aimed at people with long-term or life-threatening illnesses.

These virtual sessions will take place using the online communication tool Zoom.
