Support Networks / Local Meetings / Local Mailing Lists

To join one of GRSNNZ’s LOCAL SUPPORT NETWORKS a Gastric Reflux Support Network NZ for Parents of Infants & Children Charitable Trust Membership & Confidentiality Agreement Form needs to be completed.  Areas are defined by New Zealand Regions such as  Auckland, Canterbury, Northland, Southland, etc.

The Local Mailing Lists are coordinated via a Yahoo! Group for each area. This allows members to keep in touch when and how they want. They can communicate with each other by sending an email to the group email address or replying to any email from the group. Meetings can be arranged via the groups.

Once your membership form has been received you will receive an invite to join the Yahoo! Group for your area, but you will need to complete the approval process for the Yahoo! Group.

For many areas we also have a Private Facebook Group – and this can be requested if there is not one for your area.

We now also have available four additional Private Facebook Groups:

  • “National Gastric Reflux Support Network NZ”
  • Laryngomalacia GRSNNZ Support Network
  • “Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders GRSNNZ Support Network
  • “Feed GRSNNZ Support Network” – for those living with feeding difficulties, failure to thrive or tube feeding.

If you are already a member of GRSNNZ and want to join a Support Network, please use the contact form.

Please review our Local Support Network Rules.  NB:  All our Support Network groups are private and available to GRSNNZ members only.
