What We Do

We offer advice to individuals, we run support groups, and we campaign on issues affecting asbestos victims and their families.


If you live in Greater Manchester, and you have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer or mesothelioma, your hospital may have asked us to ring you. We provide advice on benefits and compensation.
