Arthritis Action Groups - Arthritis Action

Arthritis Action Groups

Arthritis Action Groups give people the opportunity to meet others living with arthritis in their local community.

They are a great way to share your hints, tips and experiences with others who understand the impact arthritis can have on your daily life.

The meetings, running approximately every six weeks, focus on discussion around topics related to the self-management of arthritis from eating well to mental health. Specialist speakers are also invited along to share information about local services and referral pathways.

Covid-19 Notice: Please note, due to the continuing pandemic, all meetings are taking place online. We will resume our face to face meetings when it is safe to do so.

 

Online Group meetings

All of our Arthritis Action Group meetings are currently running via the teleconferencing platform Zoom. The Groups take place in different regions across England, and provide an opportunity to meet local people who share their experience of living with arthritis, as well as to learn helpful self-management techniques, from the expert speakers we invite along. The regional meetings give more people a chance to access much-needed peer support.

For upcoming event dates and up-to-date information, please visit our Events Calendar.

You can expect to hear more on topics such as goal setting, distraction techniques and pain management.
