Support

Your story and your life matters.  If you or a loved one has been affected by asbestos, please tell us about your experiences, you are not alone, there maybe someone else in your town who is also going through similar experiences.  We won’t know about others unless we start to share! You are not alone. We provide tailored support to you living with mesothelioma in Wales. Call us 01495 272 479

From Diagnosis

From the moment you hear those words ‘asbestos’ ‘mesothelioma’ ‘treatment’ ‘next hospital appointment’ you need to give us a call to share your feelings and to sound out what it all means, we have experience of helping others who have trod similar paths so we can help to lighten the confusion call us 01495 272 479

Jigsaw Pieces

Our logo, the jigsaw, is like our life.  Each piece which makes it up can have a profound impact upon our life.   When diagnosed with an illness, such as an asbestos related one, the pieces include the health personnel who are there to help , those who can provide the necessary benefit advice, those who can help you through the legal maze, and those who will share their personal stories, the development of lasting friendships which can mean so much when you are feeling isolated.  The jigsaw pieces need to come together – that is what AASC is all about and we can make it happen with your help!
