The Difference We Make
This year was like no other. Like many organisations and charities, we have had to deal with an overwhelming amount of uncertainty due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
We were fortunate to receive generous funding from the Government’s National Lottery Coronavirus Community Support Fund, to help support the running of our Virtual Groups, which we launched to enable people to continue to receive peer-support during these difficult times.
We are very pleased to report that we organised over 140 Group meetings and events this year, with over 2,500 people in attendance. We have also provided much-needed telephone support to more than 2,000 people since lockdown in March.
The Covid-19 pandemic has taught us that no matter the circumstances, our work must continue. None of our accomplishments this year would have been possible without the endless support of our Members, partners, volunteers, supporters, staff members, Trustees and service users. We are confident that together, we will continue to make a difference for communities affected by arthritis across the UK.
