CLASAG meetings go online

The Cumbria & Lancashire Asbestos Support Advice Group is reopening its meetings, but for now, they will be online. The meetings provide both an opportunity for peer support and to find out what help and advice is available. Guest speakers include dieticians, complementary therapy, cancer and palliative care. The online meetings will take place via the Zoom platform, every third Monday of each month from 1-3pm, starting on 22 June 2020.

Anyone living in Cumbria and Lancashire who has an asbestos-related condition and their carers are most welcome to the meetings.

Alan Reid CEO, Disability First, says: “This is a terrific opportunity to use technology to help sustain a critical care group. It’s one of our flagship support services and we want to maintain and grow the member numbers.”

If you need further information or support in setting up Zoom, please contact Carol Reid or call 07702 180341.
