Liskeard and South East Cornwall Breather’s Group...
...is a non-profitmaking group that was set up in 2006 by a group of patients with COPD after completing an NHS rehabilitation course. They wanted to retain the benefits of the exercise regime they had learned, as well as providing a social support group for people with similar problems. They were then joined over the succeeding years by other patients who have found great benefit from the group, both from the social aspect, talks from health professionals, and the exercise regime at the group meetings.
Since then we have gone from strength to strength, lecturing in schools to dissuade schoolchildren from smoking; setting up additional groups around Cornwall; buying nebulisers for the local surgeries; receiving endorsements and support from organisations such as the NHS, Age UK and The British Lung Foundation. This culminated in July 2013 with the group winning the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services, which was presented to the group in September 2013 by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall.
The group welcomes all people with long term conditions and we aim to help and support everyone who joins us.Read more
