There are a number of Asbestos Support Groups (ASG) across the UK providing services for people with asbestos related diseases.  Mesothelioma is just one of those diseases.

The majority are based within the North of England and Scotland.  However, most ASG’s provide advice and information outside of their immediate geographical area.  Many of the ASG’s are registered as a charity and they all provide similar services.  They provide information and support for anyone affected by asbestos, particularly regarding benefits and compensation.

Many provide the opportunity for people affected by asbestos to get together as part of the group. All work hard to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos and to improve services for current patients and their families.

Asbestos Victims Support Group Forum UK
