London Asbestos Support
London Asbestos Support is a charity committed to providing practical and emotional support for anyone who has been affected by mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases across London and The South East.
The organisation was set up by The London Hazards Centre Trust Limited, which was established in 1984. We obtained independent charity status in 2017. All of our services are free.
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.
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.
During 2019, we helped bereaved carers and family members establish three new friendship groups across The South East.
