Asthma and Allergy Foundation

We awarded £1,700 to this project

Older people and people with asthma and long-term lung conditions are at a greater risk of being more severely affected by coronavirus, which causes an infection in the respiratory tract and can cause difficulties with breathing. This causes increased anxiety for this group as they adhere to social distancing measures and avoid non essential contact.

Asthma and Allergy Foundation provides ‘Bags of Care’ which include personal hygiene essentials to residents within sheltered accommodation. As well as benefiting from the care pack’s useful contents the recipients receive a message of support from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation to let them know the staff are there to support them and remind them can have a friendly chat on the phone if they have any concerns.
