Arthritis advocacy means we advocate for people with arthritis. Advocacy gives people with arthritis a voice on issues that affect them every day. To do this, we raise awareness about arthritis and promote your needs at every level. We engage with policy makers over issues that affect people with arthritis, and we partner with others to work together in your best interests.
Your voice is important too! Whether you have arthritis yourself or a member of your family has the condition, you can play a part in spreading the message about arthritis to those who can bring about change. If you’d like to join us as an arthritis advocate, phone 0800 663 463 or fill in the form below.
