ADSS turns 25 today

Today is our 25th anniversary of service to the Asbestos Related Diseases Community. The Society was formed by Shirley White with 35 members. Today we would like to recognise Shirley, Ros Bailey, Col Sutherland, Francis Jamieson and Matthew Craswell founding members of the Society. Without the inspiration and commitment of these people the Society would not be in existence today and be able to undertake the program of work that we do.

We now have over 700 members and assist many, many more. We undertake 22 Morning teas across Queensland , the Northern Territory and Northern NSW, as well as undertake awareness stalls and Home Shows, Agricultural Shows and Seniors Expo’s.

We at ADSS are proud to serve this community.
