Asthma in Ashford Project

The Foundation's longest and most significant commitment – over £1.05 million - has been to the Asthma in Ashford project, which started in 1993. The project followed a group of 630 children from pre-birth up to the age of 8 years old, to investigate the causes of childhood allergy and asthma with the aim of discovering why the latter is becoming more common.  Although the Colt Foundation funding has now ceased, the children are in their teens and are still being monitored by the study team.
