My name is Rosamund and I am Ella Roberta’s mum. I am the Co-Founder of the Ella Roberta Family Foundation that was set up after the death of my beloved daughter in 2013 from a rare and severe form of asthma. The aim of the Foundation is to improve the lives of children affected by asthma in South East London by rasing awareness of asthma, campaigning for better treatment of asthma and campaigning for clean air as it is everyone’s fundamental right to breathe clean air.
My work at the Ella Roberta Family Foundation is incredibly varied. I raise awareness of the dangers of asthma in young people and their families through education by having assemblies in schools, visiting local community groups and advising health professionals how the general public is able to access better treatment. I also represent the views of parents with children with asthma to clinicians and decision makers involved in the commissioning or provision of care and services for young people with the condition. My role at the Foundation also involves building relationships with communities and policy makers across South East London to influence policy and promote understanding of asthma and its impact.
