Welcome To Hands to Hold

Hands to Hold aims to provide support to people in the Australian community experiencing a significant impact to their quality of life as a result of Chronic Allergic Diseases and/or Chronic Skin Conditions.



We aim to reduce social isolation, improve quality of life and overcome social and other barriers created by the condition, through a number of different activities, services and networks.

According to the National Allergy Strategy (Aug 2015), over 4 million Australians are affected by chronic allergic diseases, and the quality of life for patients and carers is severely impaired. This is a growing issue and all those suffering are in need of more support.



Hands to Hold was inspired by a family with twin boys who have severe allergies and eczema. Thanks to the initiative and drive of a friend, this family finally received wonderful community support, which has made all the difference.  All families and individuals dealing with these chronic conditions deserve our community support.



Hands to Hold is a support network only.  Information received from a facilitator or a guest of Hands to Hold, does not constitute medical advice.  You should seek independent medical or professional advice.
