The British Lung Foundation (BLF) is a voluntary, non-profit organization in the United Kingdom dedicated to funding medical research into the prevention, treatment, and cure of all forms of lung disease. Since the foundation was founded in 1985, it has funded over 220 clinical, non-clinical, and epidemiological research grants. The British Lung Foundation is also committed to providing information, support, and resources to individuals affected by lung disease and their family members. The foundation, which has a head office in London and six branch offices throughout the UK, offers free membership in its "Breathe Easy Club" to affected individuals, family members, and other caregivers. The club serves as a support and information network throughout the UK for individuals with any form of lung disease and those who care for them. Members of the Breathe Easy Club receive support and information through the "Keep in Touch" contact service, local support groups, and a quarterly magazine entitled "Breathe Easy." The British Lung Foundation also provides information about all aspects of good lung health and the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of respiratory disease through its leaflet series and "The Lung Report."
