To ensure the safety of our clients and staff, Support Groups, Friendship Groups and Home Visits have been suspended until the restrictions are lifted and it is safe to resume these services.
In the meantime, our team are working from home providing enhanced telephone support.
If you need help with benefits and compensation claims or getting access to food and medicine,
or if you just need to hear a friendly voice, please get in touch.
Providing practical and emotional support for anyone affected by mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases across London and The South East
London Asbestos Support Awareness Group was set up by The London Hazards Centre Trust Limited, a registered charity, established in 1984.
We obtained independent charity status in 2017.
All of our services are free.
ADVICE & SUPPORT
Our Support Workers are very experienced in supporting sufferers of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases and understand the impact such diseases have on individuals and their families, both physically and psychologically. They are also knowledgeable about state benefits and compensation schemes and maintain close liaison with other key professionals in the care of the sufferer and their families.
Our team are available to visit individual sufferers in the comfort of their own home or can be contacted by telephone, to assist with paperwork and provide ongoing support and guidance.
SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS
We hold monthly support group meetings for sufferers and their carers to meet others undergoing the same experience. Our experienced staff, together with special guest speakers and other professionals will be available to provide information, advice or a listening ear in a safe and private environment.
Due to current restrictions, and to keep everyone safe, all meetings in person have been suspended until further notice - however, we are launching virtual support group meetings in June 2020.
HELP WITH COMPENSATION
We can signpost to legal advice and help from lawyers who are experts in dealing with asbestos disease claims.
