Donate to Dast
Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team (DAST) help all those East Midlands residents that have been diagnosed with an asbestos related disease. We provide advice on how to claim financial entitlements. We provide opportunities for victims to meet and provide mutual support. We campaign for greater awareness of the effects of asbestos and the diseases related to exposure to it . Asbestos continues to have a high presence in the UK and incidences of Mesothelioma are climbing. DAST needs to keep on growing to meet the increasing demand.
Giving DAST Your Long Term Support:
DAST is a registered charity and does not ask for any payment from those who need to access our services. Each home visit costs in the region of £100, and we also need funds to get out into the community and work with people who have been affected by asbestos.
Asbestos will not be eradicated at any time in the near future. It is estimated that 90% of all public sector housing contains asbestos and it is commonly found in schools and other public buildings.
We need people to consider supporting us well into the future. A Legacy or an In Memoriam collection is an ideal way to ensure DAST can carry on our work for years to come.
Leaving a Legacy with Dast
The best way to provide DAST with long term financial support is to leave us a legacy in your will. For more information on how to go about this, ask to see our factsheet “Leaving a Legacy to Charity in Your Will.” You will need to see a solicitor and they will need to know our full details:
