About Us

Arthritis Action Staff at AGM 2017

Founded in 1942, Arthritis Action is the only UK charity giving hands-on help to combat arthritis pain through self-management and lifestyle advice. We give people access to physical therapies in their local area alongside personal dietary and nutritional advice to help individuals manage their arthritis. Combined with exercise and individual support we can help people take early action against the onset of arthritis, manage the pain it can cause and enjoy life to the full.

We run a membership system for those who want an on-going relationship with the Charity and to access our membership benefits. Members receive a programme of active help and support to assist with managing their arthritis. This concentrates on healthy eating and the provision of physical therapies.
