Mesothelioma UK moves to new Leicestershire HQ

National asbestos-related cancer charity, Mesothelioma UK, is moving its UK headquarters into new offices on Loughborough Road, Mountsorrel, in Leicestershire.

Work is currently ongoing to develop the former local authority building into new office facilities for Mesothelioma UK’s Operations Team including 12 staff covering administration, finance, business development, research, events, and fundraising.

The charity will be moving out of its existing facilities in Leicester when the new offices are ready in summer 2021. The purchase of the building has been privately funded and this, along with the whole refurbishment, is being supported by Walter Miles Electrical Engineers Ltd which has a long-standing relationship with the charity.

Mesothelioma is a cancer related to exposure to asbestos and predominantly affects the lining of the lungs. The UK has the highest incidence of the disease in the world with around 2,700 people diagnosed each year. Mesothelioma UK offers information, support, research, and a team of specialist nurses based at NHS Trusts around the country.

Liz Darlison, Chief Executive Officer at Mesothelioma UK said: “The charity has grown from humble beginnings as a basic information service for mesothelioma patients and their families.

“We now manage a UK-wide network of 32 Clinical Nurse Specialists, providing amazing treatment and care to mesothelioma patients, in addition to funding a range of research projects and being a voice for patients, families, carers and other healthcare professionals on the national and international stages.

“The headquarters move is the next stage in our evolution and we simply wouldn’t have been able to do this without the help from the team at Walter Miles and also the dedicated trades people who are getting the offices ready for us. We will be eternally grateful for their support so we thank them all on behalf of the entire mesothelioma community.”
