COPD Support Ireland and Local COPD Support Groups

July 6, 2015 Alpha1 Admin Comments Off

COPD Support Ireland is a charity set up in 2013 to support all those living with a lung condition called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).  COPD is a term used to include chronic bronchitis, emphysema or a combination of both conditions.

COPD Support Ireland is Ireland’s only national COPD support and advocacy body, bringing together local support groups from around the country, to help those living with, and caring for someone with COPD. These support groups are run by local people with the help of COPD Support Ireland.  Their aim is to support and provide information to those who are living with COPD or who have a family member who is living with COPD. Just last month support group meetings took place in Limerick, Castlebar, North Dublin and Dublin 15/Clonee.

Two public meetings to launch local support groups are taking place in July:

July 15th in the Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh, Co.Tipperary

July 21st in the Connaught Hotel, Galway city.

All are welcome to attend. Check out COPD Support Ireland’s website for more details on upcoming events and support groups.
