Campaigns and Events

Most of our campaigning work is done in co-operation with other asbestos victims support groups, through the Asbestos Victims Support Groups Forum UK. A list of which can be found here.

Along with GMAVSG, these are groups whose primary activity is to support and to campaign on behalf of asbestos victims, and to raise funds for medical research into asbestos-related diseases.
