Benefit advice services

The Service provides advice, advocacy and information on welfare benefits, Government Compensation and Civil Compensation to anyone diagnosed with an asbestos related disease (including mesothelioma and lung cancer) living in the East Midlands. We are a cancer specific advice group. Our holistic service includes help with welfare benefits and Government Compensation. We also provide advice and information about civil compensation through our panel of Solicitors. We act as a support group by sending out regular newsletters and invitations for meetings and conferences. We now also have a bereavement support worker, offering advice on benefits and compensation as well as emotional support to families bereaved through asbestos related diseases.
