Support us & Get involved
HASAG is a registered charity dedicated to helping people suffering from asbestos-related illnesses and their families, our work is entirely funded by donations.
We are extremely grateful to our many supporters. Fundraising, through donations, legacies, gifts and other voluntary contributions helps us continue to make a positive difference to people affected by asbestos and to support important research into asbestos-related diseases and treatment.
All our supporters and trustees are asbestos patients, carers or bereaved who want us to continue our work donating, wherever possible, to help everyone affected by the devastating legacy of asbestos.
We are incredibly proud to have raised over £600,000 for Mesothelioma UK and for more research into asbestos-related diseases.
With the help of our amazing supporters, we have been able to fund research through the Mick Knighton Mesothelioma Research Fund (MKMRF) and the June Hancock Mesothelioma Research Fund (JHMRF).
We have also been able to part-fund 4 specialist Mesothelioma UK nurses in the South and East of England in partnership with Mesothelioma UK.
With our supporters’ help, we have been able to help fund nurses cross the region to attend educational conferences to share best practice and information about the latest trials and treatments available to help patients suffering from asbestos-related disease. These events include:
- British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG)
- National Lung Cancer Forum for Nurses (NLCFN)
- Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF)
- International Mesothelioma Interest Group (IMIG)
- World Lung

We also regularly donate to hospices throughout the South that offer asbestos patients and their families great care, support and compassion at a very difficult time.
As representatives of people affected by asbestos, we have lobbied the UK government to campaign for better treatment to be made available on the NHS. We will continue to fight for those who are suffering due to asbestos exposure and their families.
