What I do

Jeremy has been supporting and developing self-help groups for 20 years, first in the field of mental health and since 2008 with ‘Breathe Easy’, the British Lung Foundation’s support group network. Building partnerships with NHS organisations and encouraging volunteers to become activated and engaged has resulted in Breathe Easy groups increasingly being adopted as part of respiratory pathways. Jeremy led on ‘Integrated Breathe Easy’ evaluated as part of the CSAIF project showing that peer support can be effective for people living with respiratory illness.
