Registered charity number: 1148804.  Companies House registration: 8018086

Asbestos Awareness and Support Cymru (AASC) is providing a Wales wide network of help and support to those living with asbestos related illnesses and their families. Providing tailored support to those with mesothelioma in Wales.

We are here to guide those diagnosed with an asbestos related illness and their families to the help they need from health, social care and legal professionals in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors to ensure that they are aware of the best assistance available within Wales.  Join our family of support.

We would like to support you in any way we can and help with your enquiry so would love to hear from you! However, due to the sensitive and confidential nature of enquiries relating to health, and because we want to prioritise your personal enquiry, we ask that you contact us directly on our telephone helpline on 01495 272479 and speak with Jo, our Support Officer who will be keen to assist in any way she can.
If for some reason we are away from our desk, please feel free to leave a message and contact number and we will get back to you as soon as possible as your call is very important to us! Please note, that we are not clinical and are not qualified to provide medical advice, however can signpost to helping agencies and specialist advice services and we can also share information, tips and provide a listening ear and shared understanding.
Every enquiry is treated as being confidential and individual needs are considered in every case which is why we are unable to provide advice relating to your personal circumstances over social media or via Email. However, if you would like more information about our support groups and events or if you have a none urgent, general enquiry and do not require an immediate response, please email us at [email protected]
Our Facebook page is simply used to provide key updates in the hope of raising awareness and we thank all who help us to share information and reach out across Wales!
