Breathing Space is a project for people diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and their unpaid Carers. Anyone who has been diagnosed with COPD is welcome to attend .
All groups meet on a fortnightly basis, giving you the opportunity to learn about your condition as well as have some fun in a sociable setting. Our support includes home visits by Peer Supporters and regular day trips.
We currently have groups in Corby, Daventry, East Northants, Moulton and Northampton as listed below. You do not need to book you can just turn up but should you require further details please contact us .
A flyer is available here.
We regularly post useful information on COPD on our Facebook Page
Delivered in partnership by Northamptonshire Carers, Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust & Nene Clinical Commissioning Group
Details of our Breathing Space Groups for those with COPD and their carers
We are trained in providing smoking cessation support. We know that the stress of caring can make it difficult to give up smoking. If you smoke and want to give up, we are looking to run group support to help you through the first few weeks.
There are several other options to support those with COPD other than our Breathing Space Project. These include Singing for Breathing and local Airways groups.
