The Jersey Asthma and Respiratory Society was formed in 1985 to provide support for adults and children in Jersey who suffer from asthma and other respiratory conditions. It is a small charity working hard to raise funds, and awareness of asthma and respiratory conditions, to be able to offer support in as many ways as possible. Monies received from grants, donations and fundraising events are used to:-

 

·        To promote Asthma awareness; to give support, advice and information to asthma sufferers and their families.

 

·        Fund Asthma & Respiratory Information Mornings – a free clinic at the General Hospital every Saturday morning where adults and children can receive help and advice from trained nursing staff on a one to one basis about asthma or any respiratory condition.

 

·        Allow members of nursing staff to attend training courses to enable them to improve their knowledge of respiratory conditions and the management and treatment thereof. 

 

·        Purchase many different items of equipment for children in Robin Ward and adults in the General Hospital who suffer from a wide range of respiratory conditions, for which demand continually increases.

 

·        Help individual suffers either financially or with equipment.
