    Arthritis Care logoThere are nine million people with arthritis in the UK. That’s nine million individuals, plus their families, each affected in a unique way. Arthritis Care aims to make a positive difference to their lives.

    From high quality information and support to empower you to take control of your arthritis, to campaigning for change… Arthritis Care is there for you.

    Arthritis Care exists to support people with arthritis. They are the UK’s largest organisation working with and for all people who have arthritis. They are a user led organisation which means people with arthritis are at the heart of their work – forming their membership, involved in all of their activities and directing what they do.

    They believe in:
    • choice for people with arthritis and that the first step towards making positive choices is easily accessible, reliable information
    • supporting people with arthritis in living their lives to the full
    • speaking up for people with arthritis and their needs, and pushing for change
