Arthritis Care Scotland is working for an inclusive society in which the needs of people living with arthritis are fully recognised, respected and met.
As a UK organisation, Arthritis Care recognises the increased devolution expectations across the United Kingdom. Arthritis Care Scotland is run by its own director and has its own office in Glasgow with increasing responsibility for decisions on how the team respond to the fast changing political arena – in particular changes to health and social care affecting people with arthritis.
The Scotland committee leads, co-ordinates and oversees the development of our plan to meet the needs of people with arthritis in Scotland.
The Scotland committee aims to:
• support and promote the values, mission and strategic aims of Arthritis Care
• develop systems of communicating the needs of people living with arthritis to health and social services bodies
• campaign for equality of opportunity on behalf of all people living with arthritis
• support the work of the individual branches and groups within Scotland
• champion Scotland projects and Scotland activities where these are to the advantage of people living with arthritis in Scotland
• provide practical support to branches and groups, particularly those that are new or experiencing difficulties
• develop and undertake fundraising activities to help implement the Scotland directorate
