Wake up to arthritis
Our new campaign, Wake up to arthritis, aims to raise awareness of the seriousness of the condition, remove barriers that get in the way of people's lives, and ensure people living with arthritis know we’re here to help.
Earlier this year, we surveyed over 3,000 people with arthritis. New findings, published to launch the campaign, reveal that four in five people said they feel anxious or depressed because of their arthritis.
Over 10 million people in the UK are living with arthritis. Too often, they don't have the support they need to lead the full and active life they want.
Arthritis Care works with our members and alongside other charities to make sure the voices of people with arthritis are heard by decision makers.
Together, we are fighting for:
- access to high quality healthcare for everyone with arthritis
- a fairer benefits system
- better employment support for people who are able to work
- decent care from social care services for everyone who needs it
- better understanding of the impact of arthritis.
