Who is Lipoedema Australia?
Lipoedema Australia is a not-for-profit association which was founded by members of a Facebook group dedicated to Lipoedema. An initial association was formed called Lipoedema Australia Support Society Inc (LASS), which has since evolved into Lipoedema Australia.
Lipoedema Australia is a volunteer based association which aims to:
- Raise awareness of Lipoedema
- Advocate for and support women with Lipoedema
- Provide a safe, supportive and educational resource through a closed Facebook group
- Provide information and resources for ongoing management of Lipoedema
The committee members of Lipoedema Australia are volunteers who suffer with Lipoedema - and are not medical professionals. We offer support and information via our Facebook group, website, annual conferences and other public and private events.
24/7 Closed Facebook Group (LASS)
If you have or suspect that you have Lipoedema, we strongly recommend that you join our Facebook Group for education and support. Our files show information on how to manage Lipoedema along with many other relevant topics. More importantly it offers the opportunity for interaction with over 1,600 other members who are very understanding and supportive. Social events are promoted regularly on our Facebook group.
