Imagine being one of the 270,000 people in Western Australia who can’t ‘just breathe’. With your help, Asthma WA can empower people with asthma to take back control of their respiratory health and breathe better.
Asthma WA (formerly Asthma Foundation of WA) has been helping Western Australians breathe better for over 50 years. We are registered charity providing education and support for people with asthma and those around them. We do this through a variety of education and advice mediums including telephone, face to face clinics, video conferencing (telehealth) and online resources and education packages.
ALL OUR SERVICES ARE PROVIDED FREE TO THE CONSUMER
Who We Are
Help Western Australians breathe better.
Leading the education and empowerment of Western Australians to take control of their respiratory health.
We strive to show a deep respect for human beings inside and outside our organisation, and the communities in which they live. We consider other’s needs, wants and feelings, and value their individual skills, abilities and knowledge.
We are honest, open, ethical and fair. People trust us to adhere to our word.
We will collaborate internally and externally to achieve the best possible outcome for people with asthma in WA.
We are genuine in our passion to inspire others to make a difference.
We are committed to excellence at all levels of our organisation. We always adhere to best practice principles and aspire to be at the forefront of respiratory health.
SUPPORTING RESPIRATORY PATIENTS ACROSS WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Our small experienced team supports over 5,100 people right across WA through respiratory advice, education and management plans, and we educate over one thousand health professionals about asthma and COPD.
We connect with the community through provision of education, support and resources to a variety of community groups including schools, workplaces, sports clubs, prisons, aged care, childcare centres and regional respiratory support groups. We operate from our West Perth office and outreach locations around Perth, or via our telehealth service for those living in regional WA or the Perth metropolitan area who cannot attend in person. We also visit country areas wherever possible to provide our services to regional and remote WA.
