The Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team (DAST) supports families and victims of asbestos-related diseases throughout Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire (including Boston, Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Immingham) and Burton-upon-Trent.

As well as helping with welfare benefits and government compensation schemes, DAST also provides regular newsletters and holds meetings and conferences, enabling those diagnosed to meet and support one another and overcome any feelings of isolation.

DAST works with other groups across the country so there is one voice to campaign for justice for victims of asbestos-related diseases.

Thompsons is privileged to have worked closely with DAST since they first started in 2002 and is proud to have been alongside the organisation as it has become known for its personal and caring service and expanded across the region.
