Action on Asbestos, Industrial Disease and Injury, Scotland’s leading asbestos charity, is expanding with a new mission. The charity, until recently known as Clydeside Action on Asbestos, has been helping people with an asbestos-related disease for over 35 years. Now, they are expanding so that anyone who develops a work-related illness or injury can benefit from their advice service.
Thousands of men and women who lost their lives to asbestos-related disease were remembered today. A special memorial was held in Johnston Gardens in Aberdeen to remember those who have died and remember the families and friends who have lost a loved one. Clydeside Action on Asbestos Aberdeen who organise the memorial, have provided a local advice and support service in Aberdeen for over ten years.
