Thanks to Lottery Funding we would like to invite you to attend our FREE Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team Volunteering Event which will be a fun and engaging way to discover more about the volunteering opportunities available to you in your local   area with DAST.  A wonderful afternoon tea will be provided and this is a fantastic opportunity to meet and chat with like minded people

If you or a loved one have been affected by an asbestos related condition and are interested in learning more and would like to attend, you can book your place by printing, completing and returning the form HERE . Or you can send an email with your details or telephone. Need to know more? Please don’t hesitate to get in contact for more information.

There are several ways in which you can volunteer for DAST:

– We travel throughout the East Midlands to provide advice to those affected by asbestos disease. It is very useful to have a volunteer driver to take staff to their visit location. If you enjoy driving, have your own car and are happy to sit in on the interviews, then we pay a good mileage rate and a lunch allowance.

– Organising fundraising events for your area, and acting as our representative at other people’s events

– Taking part in our bereavement project as a befriender or as a member of the Friends and Relatives Forum

– Becoming a DAST ambassador – speaking at our events and to the press
