Welcome To CARDS

Cumbria Asbestos Related Disease Support or CARDS is a voluntary charitable organisation, based in Barrow-in-Furness and providing support to residents of Cumbria and north Lancashire.

CARDS is dedicated to giving help, information and support to anyone affected by asbestos-related diseases, including asbestosis, mesothelioma, and asbestos-related lung cancer.

CARDS also works to raise awareness of the dangers of asbestos and supports international campaigns against the mining and use of asbestos.

Every month, we hold an informal, open meeting where you can get advice on a wide range of services. Find out more about our meetings here.

“It’s something special about being with people who understand what you’re going through”
