Asbestos is a material that was used to build houses until it was found out that it could be bad for you.
What does asbestos do?
Asbestos does not hurt you unless it is damaged and bits of it go into the air and you breathe it in.
When you breathe it in it can cause breathing problems and can be dangerous.
How do we make asbestos safe?
We carry out checks to make see if your home has any asbestos in it.
If it does then we will make sure it is safe.
We might send you a letter asking if we can come into your house so we can check for asbestos.
Never carry out a repair yourself.
If you report repairs to us or to your supported housing officer then you should not come into contact with asbestos.
