World Arthritis Day Appeal - Arthritis Action

Just £5 can make a difference to the communities we serve

COVID-19 has had a severe impact on the lives of people with arthritis. We need your help to counter the effects of lockdown.

More than 4 in 5 people with arthritis have reported experiencing loneliness as a direct result of current restrictions. It has negatively affected their sleep, their physical and emotional health, all of which have led to a worsening of their symptoms.


How can I help? Please support our campaign this October by texting WAD to 70085 to donate £5 today*.

Where does my £5 go? Just £5 will help us build more online resources for people with arthritis during the pandemic.

* Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message
