Asbestos Support Groups
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.
In Autumn 2005 Mesothelioma UK surveyed all the ASG known to us in order to increase our understanding of the services that they provide.
Details of the ASG that responded that provide a similar service are contained within this section of the website. A majority are based within the north of England and Scotland where local asbestos industry and consumption has been greatest. However, most ASG provide advice and information outside of their immediate geographical area.
