about

 

As a small charity that receives no funding from government or the NHS we are totally dependent on our supporters to fund our work and are proud of what we have achieved using our limited resources. Just 17p in every pound we receive is used to run the organisation meaning we can use  83% of the money raised directly to support those who need us, raise awareness of lymphoedema and provide information for Health Care Professionals.

 

“The fact that I can call on the LSN at anytime is a huge help. They are supportive and pro-active on my behalf and I am happy to help in any way I can."
LSN Member 2016

“I am both humbled and challenged by the support we receive from those we help. Humbled that individuals feel we are worthy of the effort and thought it takes to run a marathon, hold a cake sale, ask for donations instead of birthday gifts or even remember us in their will and challenged to ensure that year on year we honour that thought and effort by doing all we can to ensure that we continue to provide what those living with or affected by lymphoedema need.” Karen Friett – LSN Chief Executive

Welcome to the Lymphoedema Support Network website. If you have developed lymphoedema, you are not alone; recent research suggests that lymphoedema affects at least 240,000 men, women and children in the UK. Although lymphoedema is a long term condition, with the right information, support and treatment there is much that can be done to improve both swelling and other symptoms. 

The LSN is a registered charity run by people who live with lymphoedema and is the largest information provider about the condition in the UK. This website forms part of our work and contains information for patients about the condition and the experience of living with lymphoedema as well as information for health care professionals looking to support patients with lymphoedema. Should you not find what you are looking for here then please do not hesitate to contact us.
