Join the team

A young and energetic charity with a clear future direction

We want to support more people affected by pulmonary fibrosis and work faster towards finding a cure.

Do you have the skills and passion we need?

Pulmonary fibrosis refers to a specific group of lung diseases thought to be affecting around 70,000 people in the UK. The nature of these diseases all cause hardening and scarring of the lungs, preventing the transfer of oxygen into the bloodstream. It has a devastating impact on quality and quantity of life and on breathing.

Pulmonary fibrosis affects every area of family life. Yet there is very little dedicated support available to patients and families affected.

Since APF was set up as a charity in 2013 we have established ourselves as a respected and influential charity.

Current vacancies:

Community and Corporate Fundraiser
