Asbestos Victims Association (SA)
The Asbestos Victims Association (SA) (AVA) began in 2000 to meet an unfilled need for a service which could offer support, information and Counselling for anyone suffering from an asbestos-related disease, along with their families.
AVA has many volunteers who are travelling the asbestos victim's journey. There are sufferers, carers, friends and family available to share the load with you by visiting victims at home, in hospital or wherever the need occurs.
Awareness seminars and information meetings are organised around the state each year, primarily throughout regional areas, sometimes with the assistance of SafeWork SA inspectors, medical advisers and local spokespersons.
