A project for children with asthma aged 6-16 years.

An innovative one year project which gave the children a chance to improve their asthma control through fun activities and get rewarded for their engagement. The children had access to a highly specialised multi-disciplinary Alder Hey team comprising of a consultant, physiotherapist, pharmacist, psychologist, nurse and therapy assistant. The sports coaches were trained to recognise and manage asthma symptoms early.

The project aimed to reduce asthma attacks, improve general fitness and empower children and families to have control of their asthma management

Alder Hey offered children fun and free after school activities in a range of venues across Liverpool including West Derby, Toxteth, Walton, Anfield, Kirkby and Wavertree. The more activities attended the more rewards the children received. Weekends and holiday activity camps were also available. The children could also bring a friend or sibling to the activities.
