Lupus New Zealand welcomes you to explore our website and become more informed about this life-changing condition.
We are committed to providing education, support and awareness amongst the lupus community, their families and friends.
For more on-line information about lupus and related disorders, please visit our 'resources' page to gain access to a world wide resource base.
We update the site regularly with news and events throughout the year......please visit us again!
Our first meeting for 2015 will be held on Wednesday 4 March - further information on the 'news and events' page.
The Lupus Trust of New Zealand has recently deregistered from the Charities Commission due to lack of volunteers to run the trust board.
With our limited resources we will continue under the umbrella of Lupus New Zealand and our helpers will endeavour to provide support to lupus people through the following volunteer services:
Continuation of our 0800 number which provides a telephone support network and is often first point of contact for those diagnosed with lupus, their families or caregivers. Our volunteer will help where possible with any concerns.
Continue with our Auckland lupus group on the North Shore and if possible West Auckland if we can find a volunteer to co-ordinate the group. At the meetings we provide educational materials and library books for borrowing. The groups meet regularly to listen to professional speakers, socialise and learn from others in a caring environment.
We plan to revise and update our website to make it a more information based site together with providing Auckland meetings times and speakers.
Our Lupus New Zealand facebook page, an important part of enabling lupus people to share information will continue with the current volunteer giving of her valuable time to co ordinate the page.
