Asbestoswise General Appeal


Asbestoswise is a Victorian based not for profit organization working towards a society free from the devastating effects of asbestos related disease.

Through our dedicated staff and volunteers, our services and advocacy work aims to ensure that

a) the general community is aware of the potential risks of exposure to asbestos
b) people are informed about how to have asbestos identified, tested and safely removed the home, community and the workplace environment
c) every family experiencing an asbestos related disease has the social and emotional support they need

In Australia on average, 4,000 people each year die from an asbestos-related disease (ARD) at a cost of over $500 million (Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency)
