Fun and adventure

Calling all young people living with arthritis! Adventure and connection awaits in the October school holidays

Camp Footloose provides a valuable opportunity for children and young people with arthritis (aged 9 to 18 years) to have fun, meet others like them and share experiences in a supportive environment. It also helps them gain a sense of control over arthritis and their lives.

We’re so excited to have our first donations for the Many Hands project! Thank you so much to Barbara and Alison for these beautiful hand knitted dolls and ornaments.
If you’re someone who enjoys knitting, or has done in the past, perhaps you might like to pick up the needles for a good cause – and the potential positive impact it will have on your joint health and mobility.
We’ve started a new initiative called ‘Many Hands’ which focuses on using our hands to keep them nimble, while creating arts and crafts items to sell – raising funds to support the ongoing work of our organisation.
To learn more about the Many Hands project, and to get some great Christmas decoration patterns to help inspire you to join us, head to our Many Hands page.
Great to have Southern Cross News sharing our message that physical activity is one of the best things you can do to manage and prevent arthritis symptoms. Shirley’s story is a great example of how life can improve with the right supports in place. With arthritis being the most reported chronic health condition in Tasmania in the recent census, we are calling for greater focus on prevention programs and education about how to manage and live well with an arthritis diagnosis. Our Smoother Movers Strength Training Program is run by trained exercise professionals and designed with those with arthritis in mind. If you’re under the care of a physiotherapist, they will likely recommend a similar program. What’s important is you find the program and activities that work for you, as well as the support and understanding to help you live well with arthritis.
