About Reflections

Every year in Australia there are an estimated 4,000 deaths from asbestos. It is estimated that 1 in 3 homes still contain asbestos in some form.

Our Purpose

Asbestos is still a very real threat to Australian lives, landscapes and environment. Reflections is a not-for-profit focused on REDUCING THE IMPACT of asbestos and BRINGING HOPE to those affected.

We believe in:

  • Supporting those affected by asbestos-related disease through creating community, providing caring support and fostering connection
  • Increasing awareness of the ongoing risks of asbestos in our community
  • Promoting education and training for industries affected by asbestos products

We are privileged to have a dedicated team of people who share our vision and passion to (in the words of our Patron, ) “…make this cruel disease a thing of our past and not our future.”

We look forward to a time when the work we do is no longer needed – “Lives untouched by Asbestos” – in the meantime, we appreciate your support as we continue to reduce the impact of asbestos on the community.

Contact us to find out more or discuss ways you can be part of this important work.

As we experience a 3rd ‘wave’ of sufferers, including home renovators (DIY) and tradies, ongoing community AWARENESS is crucial. Reflections, in partnership with the building industry, is actively increasing awareness through events such as Steeltoes & Stilettos along with advocacy for improved apprentice asbestos awareness training. With the age of first exposure being 23 years of age, training and education to those most at risk is essential.
