There are many lupus and Sjogren’s syndrome support groups around Australia, in major cities and in regional areas.  If you can’t find a support group meeting close to you, then perhaps you might consider starting and running a small, informal support group in your local area.  The Lupus Association of NSW Inc is always happy to assist people with starting up lupus support groups and can be contacted on 1800 802 088 (Freecall NSW Country & Interstate) or if you are in Sydney call 02 9878 6055 or email us
