Air-Ways


SARAG was delighted to be awarded funding from the Big Lottery Fund, Awards For All programme for our Air-ways project, which is a 12 month health initiative aimed at people with respiratory conditions including asbestos-related conditions. There are six Air-ways courses scheduled, which will run consecutively at six different venues across Sheffield from April 2012 to February 2013. Each Air-ways course runs twice a week for six weeks and is run by a qualified pulmonary exercise specialist at sports and leisure centres across the city. The courses are intended to help people understand their conditions, increase lung capacity and manage breathlessness through gentle, supervised exercise.

Following a very successful launch event on 20th April, the first Air-ways course was held at Ponds Forge Leisure Centre and ran from 23rd April for six weeks.
