Campaigning hard

We are here to shout loud and campaign hard for better care and services for people with cystic fibrosis (CF), but to really be heard we need you to join us!

We tackle issues that matter – access to medicines, fairer transplant processes and equal care for all – and the more people join in, the louder our voice will be. Together, we have the power to create a brighter future where people with cystic fibrosis (CF) can live a life unlimited, so let’s speak up and make it happen, sooner.

Our campaigns have called for better facilities for people with cystic fibrosis at King’s College Hospital, a national lung allocation system and access to cost-effective travel insurance and free oxygen on flights. Now, we are campaigning for fairer access to precision medicines that are in the pipeline.

Choose a campaign below to find out more about our work and how you can get involved, and if you have any questions or want to help out, contact - we'd love to hear from you!
