Would You Like To Become More Involved With ILFA?

Perhaps you could do a once-off fundraising event such as a coffee morning or maybe you would be interested in setting up a local ILFA support group where you live.

You can decide what level of involvement you would like to have. If you are interested in getting more involved, ILFA would like to hear from you.

Patient Support Groups

The ILFA pulmonary fibrosis support groups monthly meetings remain cancelled for the foreseeable future in the interest of patient safety and in line with public health advice during the COVID19 pandemic.

We hope that the face to face support group meetings will be able to resume in the future when it is safe to meet in person once again. ILFA will update the website with information when this happens. In the meantime, some online support group meetings are taking place. Keep an eye on the ILFA website and social media channels for announcements.

Stay safe everyone.
