ADSS is made up of people who have an asbestos related disease, their families, friends and carers as well as unions, asbestos industry representatives and related government departments. The Society also works closely with medical and legal professionals experienced in asbestos related diseases.

The Asbestos Disease Support Society (ADSS) is here to assist anyone who is affected by an asbestos related disease – whether directly or indirectly. ADSS is able to provide information as well as moral and emotional support to sufferers, carers, family members and friends. We are also able to provide advice and the contact information to receive the best possible medical treatment and legal advice. Those affected by asbestos disease, or their dependents, may be eligible for compensation and/or a pension.
