Covid-19 update for our support groups

The health and safety of every person affected by scleroderma is of vital importance to Scleroderma Australia. Our Committee takes very seriously the threat the coronavirus presents to individuals living with scleroderma, who are of course immunocompromised and vulnerable with the current escalation of COVID-19 in our community. 

As such, Scleroderma Australia have cancelled all support group meetings until at least June 30, 2020. With the continually changing environment we will continue to evaluate the situation to update our events that will take place in the future, at which time we will make adjustments as necessary under the directives of federal and state government and health departments. It would be wise to keep up to date by accessing the Australian Department of Health website or call 1800 020 080.

We would also like to provide you with a great resource from SPIN, The Scleroderma Society of Ontario, Scleroderma Canada:
