Our inspiration

Acnc Registered Charity Logo Rgb

Eczema Support Australia was inspired by a family with twin boys who have severe allergies and eczema. Thanks to the initiative and drive of a friend, this family finally received wonderful community support, which has made all the difference and inspired the creation of Eczema Support Australia.

Since then, the organisation has gone from strength-to-strength, and has been built on the core belief that all families and individuals dealing with these chronic conditions deserve our community support.

Our Vision is for Australians living with eczema

through connection, advocacy and information.
