Breathing Space is a project for people diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and their unpaid Carers.

  • It aims at reducing social isolation and improving wellbeing.
  • It is available to those in Northampton, Daventry and surrounding areas 

Fortnightly Breathing Space group meetings held in Daventry and Northampton will provide:

  • Opportunities to share experiences and engage in social and fun activities
  • Access to clinical advice from a GP or specialist nurse
  • Sessions on relaxation, self-management, healthy eating, exercise and practical advice
  • Access to emotional support service.

Very pleased to have attended. Made to feel at ease and welcomed. Looking forward to the next meeting.
