London Asbestos Support Awareness Group is committed to supporting sufferers with a person centred approach. The work we do at our non-profit charity is aimed at providing support in the way of one to one support, support groups (face to face & zoom), providing information, offering advice and help with benefits and government and legal compensation schemes you may be entitled to. We also offer friendship groups for loved ones to help build a social, supportive network.
Our support workers are all DBS checked for extra peace of mind.

"It is so nice to speak to people with the same condition as myself. And so interesting for me and my wife to listen to the guest speakers. This is a marvellous group run by such lovely people who are so kind and helpful and nice to know they are always at the end of the phone. Long may it continue"
