Imagine being one of the 300,000 people in Western Australia who can’t ‘just breathe’. With your help, Asthma WA can empower people with asthma and to take back control of their respiratory health and breathe freely.
Asthma WA (formerly Asthma Foundation of WA) has been helping West 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.
Supporting respiratory patients across WA
Leading the education and empowerment of West Australians to take control of their respiratory health.
Respect, Integrity, Collaboration, Commitment and Excellence
Our small dedicated 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, prisons, aged care, workplaces, sports clubs, 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.
