JUAC works in conjunction with AIS and supports its aim and objectives.

JUAC is a non-party political group.

JUAC and AIS have a common interest in making UK schools and colleges safe from the dangers of asbestos, both for staff and pupils.

JUAC campaigns for a Government funded phased removal of all asbestos in schools. However, in the interim, JUAC campaigns for improved asbestos management in schools.
