About Us

Our aim is to:

  • Provide support to people living with lymphoedema and their families;
  • Provide practical information on self-management;
  • Promote an increased understanding of lymphoedema and effective treatments to those with lymphoedema and for health professionals.

There are lymphoedema support groups in regional areas. The most active is the Auckland group which can provide local contacts. The Auckland group has invited speakers at two monthly meetings (i.e., March, May, July, September) and an AGM held in November at the Domain Lodge, 1 Boyle Crescent, Grafton.

The Auckland group also produces the Lymphoedema Awareness Newsletter, which is circulated to financial members throughout New Zealand three times per year.
