Slater & Gordon support medical research

Initial focus on asbestos widened, with $2 million on offer.

Consumer law firm Slater & Gordon (S&G) will back research and education into public health with a new grant program.

The S&G Health Projects and Research Fund hopes to supply $2 million worth of grants for non-profit and allied health groups by 2020.

Managing director Andrew Grech says the program will benefit people suffering a catastrophic injury, disability or illness.

“We believe that beyond the individuals we represent, the firm can also play a broader role in advocating for people with asbestos and occupation-caused cancer and those who live with significant disability,” he says.

Grech says the program extends on S&G’s Asbestos Research Fund (ARF), which has donated more than $1.4 million to medical research.

""The work of the ARF, including the Vojakovic Fellowship program, will continue.
