We support those with coeliac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis and those on a gluten free diet.Auckland
It is currently estimated that 60,000 to 70,000 New Zealanders have coeliac disease (1 in 70), however up to 80% of those are unaware they have the condition and the serious complications of CD if left untreated. We support our members via our Coeliac Link magazine, resources and volunteer support groups throughout NZ for adults and children.
Increasing awareness of CD is instrumental in more diagnoses being made and supporting our members helps assist them to live a fuller life. We lobby the government for support for diagnosed coeliacs and assist with research into the disease.
CNZ receives no government funding and relies entirely on the generosity of its members, donors and adults who have coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis and those requiring a gluten free diet. - Thank you for contributing to the GF for Life research fund.
