London Asbestos Support Awareness Group Feedback

  1. Really Impressed with the knowledge

    I was given a booklet about London Asbestos Support Awareness Group when my diagnosis was confirmed of Mesothelioma so gave them a call and was contacted by Marika. We made an appointment and she came to see me at my house and I was really impressed with her knowledge that she had about cancer and what LASAG could do to help me. All my options were explained to me in clear layman’s terms and Marika helped me fill in all the forms needed to put a claim in for compensation, she also called the DWP and made a claim on my behalf for PIP. Once this was done she gave me my options for contacting a solicitor so that I could pursue a civil compensation claim. I am very grateful to LASAG as you need support at a time like this and Marika has given support and advice ever since

  2. Positive Mental Attitude

    These sessions I find amazing. I leave at the end of them feeling very elated. After being with people in the same boat as me, my fears and worries are sent back to where they belong and my positive mental attitude is maintained

  3. Visits became a lifeline as a cancer sufferer

    I have benefited greatly from your visits which have become an essential lifeline for me as a cancer sufferer. The charity is a very important part of the overall support required by patients affected by asbestos related diseases

  4. I can't recommend strongly enough!

    After my diagnosis I understandably found myself with a range of emotions, not least of which complete shock. As part of my consultation, I was handed a range of information and leaflets for advice and support and one of these was for the London Asbestos Support Awareness Group. I am so pleased that I was given this information and that I reached out to find out more. The London Asbestos Support Awareness Group has provided me with so much support, one of the most useful things to me has been advice on how to talk to my friends and family about my diagnosis. In addition to the coaching support, they were able to give me information that enabled me to get the right legal support, in addition to understanding and claiming benefits needed to help me deal with my illness and importantly to understand it. I highly recommend attending the support groups and I find these incredibly useful to meet and talk to other people in a similar position to myself. I can’t recommend the support groups strongly enough, they are friendly and extremely professional, and I have found it is good to talk.

  5. Marvellous group, such lovely, kind people.

    It is so nice to speak to people with the same condition as myself. And so interesting for me and my wife to listen to the guest speakers. This is a marvellous group run by such lovely people who are so kind and helpful and nice to know they are always at the end of the phone. Long may it continue
