DAST is a registered charity for the relief of people who have suffered ill-health, injury or become disabled from their work with asbestos.

The UK has the world’s highest rates of mesothelioma – the cancer caused by asbestos exposure – with around 2,700 people each year being diagnosed, often decades after first coming into contact with asbestos.
