The Bernie Banton Foundation is fiercely apolitical, and was founded by Karen Banton for only one reason, to uphold what Bernie Banton AM believed in; to assist people to navigate the difficult journey an asbestos disease diagnosis presents; to enable people to have informed choice about specialist asbestos litigators and medical professionals; to prevent people being exposed to asbestos by creating awareness of the danger it presents; and to advocate for, and to be:
‘The voice of reason for Australian asbestos disease sufferers, their loved ones and the wider community.’
