Asthma Relief were established in 1997 and are a charity providing essential medical breathing equipment and support to hospitals, GP surgeries, medical centres, palliative care teams, SEN schools and respite care homes. The group’s main aim is to make life easier for those living with disabilities, those who suffer from disadvantage or those in need of support with dealing with breathing related difficulties. The organisation operates a rapid response programme and receive regular requests from hospices and hospitals for nebulisers to assist terminally ill patients to be allowed home to spend their final days with their loved ones. During the pandemic they are receiving a higher demand, especially given the nature of the Covid-19 illness. TVCF were happy to award funding to allow them to purchase 5 nebulisers that will be distributed within the area of the Tees Valley, for which there is often a waiting list for equipment.
