Readley Asbestos and Mesothelioma Support was set up by Samantha Cox in memory of her father, Paul Readhead, who died from mesothelioma. She is a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP and has trained with CRUSE Bereavement.
Drawing on her own experiences, Samantha recognised the need for a holistic approach, encompassing emotional, physical, social and financial wellbeing.
The group offers advice on symptoms, treatments and clinical trials, providing individuals and families with monthly support group meetings and home visits. Each group meeting is attended by a specialist Mesothelioma UK clinical nurse specialist.
Thompsons is proud to have worked with Readley since its creation in 2015. We have supported the organisation with fundraising activities and regularly attend monthly meetings. We provide specialist legal advice where needed and work with the group to raise awareness of asbestos-related disease.
