What we do

Defying arthritis together

Too many people accept the daily pain, fatigue and isolation that arthritis causes. Too many dismiss it as ‘just a bit of arthritis’. But we don’t accept it.

We are constantly campaigning to challenge the misconceptions around arthritis and to ensure that arthritis is recognised as priority in the UK.

From challenging and influencing Government to get the big decisions right, to working with people with arthritis and our supporters we are making real headway.

Together we’re stronger. With your time, energy and generosity, we’ll continue to develop breakthrough treatments, campaign relentlessly for arthritis to be seen as a priority, challenge how people see arthritis and ensure that everyone has access to the best information, advice and support they need, whenever they need it.

Join us and we can do more to support people with arthritis.

Giving strength when you need it

We know how much strength it takes to live with arthritis. When you need support, we are here to help in whatever way you need us – on the phone, online or in person.

Creating change

There are too many people with arthritis who are living in pain without access to good enough care or treatment.   That’s why we are bringing together researchers from across the world, funding them to develop more and better treatments.  And we are working with healthcare professionals in their development so that they can support people with arthritis.
