Support Group Meetings
Eczema SUPPORT Australia hold face to face and online (webinars or web-meetings) in order to build connections, support and understanding among our eczema community. SGM may focus on topics of interest and will vary from group to group (eg; Adults with Eczema may discuss the impact on social/work life, while a group of young families may discuss the management of eczema in the school or early learning environments).
Events and webinars featuring qualified guest speakers assists in building understanding of some tricky topics. Whether it be psychological management, dermatologists or other specialists it is good to hear from the experts that also understand eczema.
Our members are able to access psychology/counselling services with a provider that has a strong understanding of the issues our members face. Members in need can be provided with *3 psychology consultations, subsidised by ESA (*subject to funding resources). Each provider will go through an Eczema SUPPORT Australia induction.This can be utilised by the member with eczema/allergies or even a family member.
An activity based club for 5-10 years old.
A connection and empowerment opportunity for our older children to thrive.
Adults with Eczema
Although children are over represented in the statistics regarding atopic dermatitis, it does not mean that adults are never affected. The psychological, physical and financial impact of eczema in adults is significant and often different to young families living with the condition. A separate connection opportunity and support is often needed.
