Support our appeal

Tax Appeal 2021

Thanks to supporters like you, we continue to listen to the needs of people living with musculoskeletal conditions and provide the help they desperately require.

We recently conducted our first nationwide, consumer-focused survey to determine the issues that people with musculoskeletal conditions face.

The results made it abundantly clear that having a musculoskeletal condition can severely impact all aspects of a person’s life. It is time that musculoskeletal issues are taken seriously so people can get the care and support they need.

65% of people have experienced financial stress. It is vital that our support services stay free of charge for this very reason.

They want to reduce the impact their condition has on their lives but need the support and resources to do so.

To respond to people’s needs, Musculoskeletal Australia will develop a suite of online self-care resources to help them effectively manage their condition. These will include evidence-based information about conditions, visiting the doctor, medications, complementary medicines, pain management, diet and exercise.

Will you donate today to ensure people have free access to these self-care resources?

By being able to access the new online resources people can practice self-care wherever they live. This is especially critical for people living far away from healthcare services

“I live in rural NSW and can’t access much information or many services. Isolation has been my norm for the last 10 years. I hope you will focus on resources for rural and remote communities…we are desperate.”

We are facing a rapidly growing demand for support as the prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions increases, along with their costs. There has never been a more urgent need to harness self-care’s potential for improving musculoskeletal health.

Please give as soon as you can before 30 June to ensure we have the funding to develop tailored online self-care resources for anyone who needs it.

Thank you for your vital support!
