Asbestoswise

Asbestoswise General Appeal

Asbestoswise is a Victorian based non 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 identify, test and safely remove asbestos in the home, community and workplace environment
c) every family experiencing an asbestos related disease has the social and emotional support they need

In Australia approx. 600 people die from an asbestos related disease (ARD) every year. Australia has one of the highest per capita death rates for ARD in the world - this is an unenviable status.

You can help to improve this statistic by supporting the work of Asbestoswise, which includes:-

  • responding to telephone and email information enquiries
  • providing referrals for testing, removal, health and legal matters
  • hosting regular support group meetings for current sufferers and bereaved families
  • providing personalized one on one personal support for current sufferers and their families
  • publishing regular newsletters and information updates
  • hosting public awareness or information events
  • advocating for safe handling and removal of asbestos in the environment
  • providing a comprehensive website for the general public
  • undertaking community research projects to help inform our work
