L-W-O Community

For those living with Primary, Secondary & Paediatric Lymphoedema Online & in the Community

Our Vision

L-W-O Community


L-W-O is a non-profit association independently run by Gaynor Leech, providing non-medical support for those living with Primary, Secondary and Paediatric Lymphoedema.  We do not charge for our services; however we do ask for donations for the upkeep of this website and our family website and the work we do across social media and in the community.

  • L-W-O Community shall work to promote awareness of lymphoedema to raise the profile of the condition.
  • Our aim is to support and reach as many people as we can who live with lymphoedema.
  • Through this website and our family website we will provide information that promotes the well-being of lymphoedema patients.
  • L-W-O will not offer medical advice but will signpost to those organisations that are more qualified.
  • L-W-O will regularly review and update our website.
  • Through our community page L-W-O shall provide information for public use and continue to raise the profile of lymphoedema.
  • Where necessary L-W-O will work with other lymphoedema organisations or public organisations when it is in the best interests of our members.
  • Where necessary and appropriate L-W-O will represent the views, concerns, and interests of our members.
  • L-W-O will always act in the best interests of our members, remain non-political, and will resolve issues among our members through democratic process.
  • L-W-O are aware of our responsibilities for safeguarding confidentiality and preserving information security for L-W-O and our members.
