The Coeliac Society of Australia

The Coeliac Society of Australia supports people who have been diagnosed with coeliac disease, and their families. It also supports sufferers of dermatitis herpetiformis and those medically diagnosed as requiring a gluten-free diet.

The State and Territory societies (see below) give advice and information about the gluten-free diet, ingredients and where to buy them, recipes and cooking, overseas travel, educational material, and research into coeliac disease. The Society works with food authorities and manufacturers to promote standards and labelling of food products.

Support groups have been set up throughout the States and Territories. Coeliac Awareness Week is held each year in March.
