Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis leads the way to finding new treatments with the Mike Bray Fellowship Award
Christmas Appeal - 12 days of Christmas
Can you support us this Christmas? We support patients and their families to give them hope and improve their quality of life. We don’t want any person affected by pulmonary fibrosis to feel that they are alone, especially at Christmas.Christmas appeal
There are many support groups around the UK where you can get help and support and find people who are also dealing with pulmonary fibrosis. Make sure you get the support you need.Find a support group
Clinical Trial Finder
Clinical trials are research studies to explore if an experimental treatment is safe and effective in treating a particular medical condition. Clinical trials are not possible without patient participation and are key to accelerating the development of new treatment options. The EU-IPFF Clinical Trial Finder is intended to inform patients about ongoing clinical trials and to help raise awareness of these studies.Clinical Trial Finder

Here's what our fundraisers are up to!
Colclough Brothers at the Manchester Half Marathon
Martin Colclough and his brothers Steve and Dave took on the challenge of running the Manchester Half Marathon on 14th October and, together with their 122 supporters, have raised a staggering £4,545 plus Gift Aid to date – smashing their £3,000 target.
Sadly they lost their dad, Alan, in May of this year – a much loved husband, dad and grandad – to Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Our absolute pleasure to fundraise for the Charity! The work you do is incredible, and a lifeline for those affected by IPF. Running a race and raising money is easy in comparison.Martin Colclough
Katy Gallagher at the Great Scottish 10k Run
Katy Gallagher, Group Accountant with the Veitchi Group, took part with some of her colleagues in The Great Scottish 10k Run at the end of September. Katy’s mum was diagnosed with IPF in 2014 and life thereafter became a daily struggle, eventually becoming bedridden with Katy’s dad taking on the role of full-time carer. Her mum passed away on 1st May this year and Katy says this whole experience has had a devastating affect on the entire family.
Katy nominated APF to be one of The Veitchi Group’s supported charities for 2018.
The work APF is doing for individuals and families affected by IPF is great and I would like to help in any way I can so fewer families go through what we didKaty Gallagher
