The Asthma Foundation WA is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping people breathe easier. The Foundation was founded in 1964 from the personal concern of a group of dedicated people, brought together to consider how they might help people affected by asthma.
Almost fifty years on, the Asthma Foundation WA has established itself as a leading community organisation that funds local research into asthma and provides education and support services for people with asthma, their families
In 2013, the Foundation undertook a new strategic direction and launched a new look. As a result, changes have been made to reflect this.
To advocate, provide asthma information, education, training and fund respiratory research
To free West Australians from the burden of asthma
Working with the West Australian community to help people with asthma and linked conditions breathe easier
