Lymphoedema Support NI, formerly the Northern Ireland Lymphoedema Support Group (NILSG), was established in October 2002 by a small group of patients together with their physiotherapist to provide support and information for people suffering from lymphoedema and to work towards the availability of better resources for lymphoedema treatment.  At that time, information and treatment for patients with lymphoedema in Northern Ireland was very limited.

Our aims are:

  • to provide support for people with lymphoedema
  • to provide information about lymphoedema and its treatment
  • to work towards the availability of better resources for lymphoedema treatment
  • to work in partnership with healthcare professionals and others involved in the statutory and voluntary sectors

What Lymphoedema Support NI offers:

  • Telephone helpline:  028 90667570
  • Information about lymphoedema and its treatment
  • Support Group meetings twice a year

Lymphoedema Support NI members include people who suffer from lymphoedema, their families and friends, doctors, physiotherapists and nurses.  Through fundraising and philantropic donations, we provide a telephone helpline service and current information about lymphoedema and its treatment and lobby for better resources for lymphoedema in Northern Ireland. 

We are committed to our ongoing development as an independent voluntary organisation supporting lymphoedema patients throughout Northern Ireland and encourage everyone affected by lymphoedema to join our group, where they will be made most welcome.

Lymphoedema Support NI is recognised as a charity by HMRC under reference XR68639.
Registered with The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland NIC101768.
