The Scleroderma Association of Queensland is a self-help group providing support, information and counselling to people with scleroderma and their families and friends.
The Association realises that sufferers often feel alone and isolated. We have members all over Queensland from Coolangatta to Cook Town and Winton (the town of Waltzing Matilda) to the East Coast.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for scleroderma research, all of the work is carried out on a voluntary basis by the members. Scleroderma patients and their family members/caregivers are invited to this support group. Together we all draw strength, hope and inspiration from each other. Please join us!
Meetings are held monthly on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, except January. The meetings take place in the Hamilton Room at Brisbane City Hall. Quarterly meetings are also held on the Gold Coast.

SCLERO.ORG was the world's leading nonprofit for trustworthy research, support, education and awareness for scleroderma and related illnesses from 1998 to 2021. It was a grassroots movement from the original Scleroderma from A to Z web site, which was founded by Shelley Ensz. We were a 501(c)(3) U.S.-based public charitable foundation. We closed this web site and our nonprofit agency in April 2021.
