Morning everyone! It's really important to make sure that you get all the help that you're entitled to. If you live with a lung condition that makes it difficult to work, to manage everyday tasks or getting around , you may be eligible to claim benefits. When you have a minute, please have a look at this information about welfare benefits from our website: blf.org.uk/support-for-you/...

If you'd like to give us a ring with any questions our Helpline Team are here to listen and help Monday - Friday 9:00am/5:00pm on 0300 222 5800.

Thank you so much Gillian, My replies seem to have been getting longer and longer with details of varied benefit issues. Including other places like yourself that can give advice.

Tried, but just got "blf.org.uk normally uses encryption to protect your information. When Opera tried to connect to blf.org.uk this time, the website sent back unusual and incorrect credentials. This may happen when an attacker is trying to pretend to be blf.org.uk, or a Wi-Fi sign-in screen has interrupted the connection. Your information is still secure because Opera stopped the connection before any data was exchanged.

You cannot visit blf.org.uk right now because the website uses HSTS. Network errors and attacks are usually temporary, so this page will probably work later.
