The Berkshire Asbestos Support Group is dedicated to providing support and advice for local sufferers of asbestos related illnesses and for their families.
Join us for tea and a friendly chat on the last Wednesday of every month at Abbots House in Reading. At these meetings we can provide support, advice and assistance on:
what benefits you and your family may be entitled to;
how to complete the relevant paperwork;
links with local solicitors who can assist you with these types of claims;
and, most importantly, a friendly person for you to talk to.
