Arthritis Action Groups

support-groups

One of our key Member benefits is the opportunity to create or join Local Support Groups – or Arthritis Action Groups, as we are now referring to them. Arthritis Action Groups offer Members a platform to meet others, share experiences and tips on living with arthritis and learn more about local services. We aim to set up Groups across the UK.

How it works:

Each Group is different and will organise activities that are relevant to the Members who attend. For example Groups could:

  • Hold ‘coffee and chat’ events where Members can share their experiences and tips
  • Invite local health professionals to give talks
  • Arrange for complementary therapists to give taster sessions
  • Organise walking sessions to help you walk 6000 steps a day
  • Arrange for a local chef to offer cooking tips
  • Organise fundraising activities e.g. walks, music and/or singing nights, balls and dances
  • Invite Arthritis Action staff to meetings so we can get to know each other and to share knowledge and skills
  • Work together to influence local arthritis provision by being the local patient voice in the area

How to set up a group:

To set up a Group we need YOU to volunteer to help lead and/or organise a group. If you are interested to find out more please contact us by email or call us on: 020 3781 7120.
