40 year Logo

In 1979 Dr Alf Barnett introduced three of his Scleroderma patients to each other. They went on to form Scleroderma Victoria. We would like to mark our achievement of 40 years of providing support for people with Scleroderma, along with their family and friends, increasing community awareness of Scleroderma and supporting research into this chronic auto-immune condition. 

Since becoming incorporated, we have continued to support people who live with Systemic Sclerosis. Our mission is to:

  • provide support to those living with scleroderma, their families, carers and friends
  • promote community awareness of scleroderma
  • support research into better treatments for all people with this chronic illness

Scleroderma Victoria is run by a Committee of dedicated volunteers, and you can learn more about them at Who We Are on our website. 

If you have a story or anything to share with us that links to our great history, please feel free to contact newsletter@sclerodermavictoria.com.au
