About us

There are 18.8 million people living with a musculoskeletal (MSK) condition like arthritis in the UK. Arthritis causes pain, fatigue and isolation every single day. It can impact on the ability to work, our relationships and take away our independence. We don’t accept this.

Versus Arthritis exists to push back against arthritis stealing people’s lives. We challenge the most common misconceptions about arthritis: that it is inevitable, only affects older people, or that it’s ‘just a bit of arthritis’. People with arthritis have a fundamental right to live independent and rich lives, whatever their age and their circumstances. We won’t stop researching, campaigning and supporting them until we’ve achieved this for everyone.

Join us and use your skills, knowledge, passion and energy to help us defy arthritis.
