The Lymphoedema Support Network (LSN)

About Us:
The LSN is celebrating 30 years of supporting people with lymphoedema in 2021. During that time, we have grown from a handful of interested people to an award-winning organisation that supports thousands of people living with lymphoedema. Run and managed by people affected by the condition the LSN is unique in its approach of promoting and informing self-management whilst also facilitating the gaining of knowledge among health care professionals, particularly GPs, in order that they can better care for anyone with lymphoedema, assisting with research and working to encourage equitable lymphoedema services across the UK.

Our Purpose and Aims:

Mission Statement

The Lymphoedema Support Network represents, supports, and empowers people affected by lymphoedema, promotes awareness of the condition and campaigns for appropriate, equitable treatment for all.

Aims and Objectives

To provide support for people with lymphoedema
To provide information about lymphoedema and its treatment to increase awareness and assist self-management.
To work towards the availability of better national resources for lymphoedema treatment
To maintain contact with health care professionals working in lymphoedema management
To promote a network of support groups throughout the UK for people with lymphoedema

Benefits to People Living with Lymphoedema

The LSN is there for those living with lymphoedema whoever they are and whatever has caused their swelling. We empower people by providing gold standard information about all aspects of living with lymphoedema in written formats including fact sheets, on our website and You Tube channel, via our self-management book and tools such as cellulitis alert cards.

We support individuals via our telephone support line and email support.

We keep people up to date with advances in care via our quarterly newsletter, social media and patient conferences.

We facilitate people supporting each other via a healthUnlocked forum and a network of local support groups.

We aid research by facilitating patient and public engagement opportunities.

We educate GPs and other healthcare professionals utilising online learning courses, providing patient perspective seminars, and producing information such as the cellulitis guidance.

We raise awareness via campaigns such as “Sock it to lymphoedema” and “Lymphoedema looks like this”.

We support children with lymphoedema or affected by it by producing packs of information for schools and clubs and even a book explaining the condition to children who have family members with lymphoedema.

We listen and are responsive, whether that be facilitating information about COVID or asking the questions to experts that people want answered.

We also work with others to try and reduce the inequalities in care and have a directory of all lymphoedema services in England.
