Meniere's affects approximately 1 in every 1,000 of the Australian population causing sudden attacks of vertigo (dizziness), loss of hearing and a continuous and often distressing noise, called tinnitus within the ear. There is no cure for Meniere's but it can usually be managed successfully by using a range of strategies.
Meniere's Australia, a consumer based organisation operates Australia's only Meniere's Information and Resource Centre to provide hope and support to people experiencing Meniere's and other inner ear disorders through provision of current information, counselling, peer support and encouragement to help people understand Meniere's and learn to reduce its destructive impact upon their lives.
We do not receive ongoing government funding to provide services and resources.
The appeal seeks funding to assist us to run the Meniere's Information and Resource Centre - a 'one stop shop' helping people understand the physical, emotional and psychological impact they are going through when first diagnosed and assisting them navigate the options available to manage their condition.
We provide a free information pack to people who request information about Meniere's and have a range of services and resources available including a counselling service, quarterly newsletter, mail order library services and lots more.
