The British Lung Foundation provides hope, help and a voice for people with lung conditions in the UK. To achieve this mission they work towards the following goals: to improve lives by preventing, treating and curing lung disease through funding research; to campaign to achieve clean air and healthy lungs; and to empower people affected by lung disease through the best support, information and services. Staff helped to shape the organisation's core values and the senior management team work to embed these principles from the very beginning. Candidates follow a values-based interview process and these areas are built into the appraisal process. Employees who are not part of the fundraising team are all eligible for the organisation's fundraiser of the month awards, recognising those who go above and beyond with activities to raise money for the charity. Regular cross-organisational working groups are held for colleagues to share their ideas for the charity.
