Many thanks for considering making a donation towards our work empowering people living with arthritis. Your kind support will help develop and provide services such as gentle exercise classes, and community educations programs focusing on lifestyle, nutrition, pain management and physical activity. We are working to empower people to achieve their own Freedom from Arthritis, our organisation’s vision.
Nearly four million Australians of all ages are affected by arthritis, and this number is expected to almost double by 2050. It is the most significant cause of pain and disability in Australia, forcing many to take early retirement, at significant financial, social and emotional cost.
Arthritis TAS offers education, support and health services to empower people suffering from arthritis to improve the quality of their lives. These include the Arthritis Infoline, camps for children with juvenile arthritis and their families, Rural Health Program, publications, educational events, gentle-exercise classes and public awareness campaigns. Your support will go towards delivery of these services and development of new programs.
