Vision and Mission Statement: Improving the life of every person affected by arthritis

We are a national charity that provides information, advice and support to people diagnosed with any of the more than 140 forms of arthritis. Arthritis affects more than 700,000 New Zealanders and is a leading cause of disability. There is no cure, but the condition can usually be managed effectively. Most people with arthritis continue to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

  • National Toll-Free Number to get Information and Advice (0800 663 463)
  • In-person and Contactless Support Groups
  • Peer Support for Newly Diagnosed
