What we do
Arthritis Care is Northern Ireland’s largest charity working with and for all people who have arthritis. The pain of arthritis is chronic, long-term and is not just limited to the elderly or frail. Young people and those of working age are also affected. Living every day in severe pain can make people with the condition feel depressed and exhausted. Simple daily tasks that others take for granted can become extremely difficult and time-consuming.
Arthritis is the largest single cause of physical disability and days off work through illness. It is not clear what causes arthritis and there is no cure at present. At Arthritis Care NI we help people of all ages to manage their condition and get on with their lives.
Gifts in Wills
Gifts in Wills are extremely important to us at Arthritis Care as they allow us to provide services such as training, mentoring/befriending and family and youth work services.
We also campaign for greater awareness of the needs of everyone with arthritis, improved services and an end to discrimination. We have a network of 21 branches and support groups providing assistance to people living with arthritis and offer free publications on a broad range of subjects.
