About Us

The Lymphoedema Support Network is an Auckland-based community support organisation providing information, a newsletter and regular public meetings that offer opportunities for those experiencing lymphoedema to get in touch with each other. 
Contact 021 088 68351 or email 

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 September at the Auckland Cancer Society (Domain Lodge), 1 Boyle Crescent, Grafton.

News and events
The Auckland group produces a newsletter which is circulated to financial members throughout New Zealand twice a year. View page one of the Autumn 2019 issue here.
