Peer Support

Support for Asbestos and Mesothelioma Victims


Who we aim to support

Our goal is to provide peer to peer support for Asbestos and Mesothelioma victims and sufferers. The purpose of our meetings is for people who have been affected by asbestos to meet like-minded people in an informal way to share stories and make new friends in a relaxed environment.

How we offer support

AMAA is non-denominational and apolitical. Everyone is welcome to come along and share their story while gaining support, guidance and assistance from fellow members. Some of our members report the benefits of the meetings as offering:

  • friendship and fellowship
  • hope and understanding
  • knowing that you are not alone in dealing with an asbestos related condition
  • compassion, care and support
  • guidance and information on issues relevant to living with an asbestos related condition
  • carer networks and support
  • information on asbestos issues in the local community, as well as nationally and globally
  • personal recommendations of local services and organisations who deal with asbestos related conditions
  • knowing that you are not alone

‘Come along and be amongst friends!’
