Raising Awareness

We have undertaken a number of innovative awareness-raising projects. In February 2012 we projected 125 names of victims of Mesothelioma onto the iconic Derby Cathedral. This was repeated in 2016 onto Lincoln Cathedral and in 2019 onto the Crooked Spire in Chesterfield.

In October 2013 we launched the house awareness project educating and raising awareness with homeowners that their home may contain the deadly material. In 2016 we launched a project raising awareness of asbestos in schools. We have also received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop materials to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos.
