For Those With Asthma and Allergies

Do...

  • Remove triggers, especially airborne triggers (e.g. flowers, incense, nuts, gluten) if asked.

  • Make it clear if there are any allergens in food/drinks you are providing.

  • Provide allergen-free alternatives if possible, and keep them separate.

  • Take people’s allergies seriously.

  • Make sure your first aider knows how to use an epi-pen.

  • Know the signs of an asthma attack, how to help, and when to call 999.

Don’t...

  • Dismiss someone’s allergies as “not serious”.

  • Prioritise traditions over someone’s health and accessibility.

  • Demand someone participates in a physical task.
