Work for us

Arthritis Research UK is the charity leading the fight against arthritis. In fact, we are the biggest funder of research into the cause, treatment and cure of all forms of arthritis in the UK.

More than one in six people are affected by arthritis, it is the biggest cause of pain and disability in the UK.
We’re working to take the pain away for people living with all forms of the disease, and to help them remain active, doing the things they love.

As an organisation we create the knowledge to change the lives of people with arthritis, from funding research, to educating health care professionals and providing information to people with arthritis and their carers.

Our aim is to fund pioneering, high quality research that will develop the best treatment for and prevention of arthritis in the world.

We receive no government funding, but rely on the generosity and commitment of our supporters to continue funding this world class research.

How Arthritis Research UK is fighting the battle against arthritis

Since Arthritis Research UK was founded (as the Empire Rheumatism Council) in 1936, treatment of arthritis and related conditions has changed beyond recognition. Much of this is as a result of the research we’ve funded.

Arthritis Research UK is proud to be a member of the Fundraising Standards Board, and as such we are committed to the principles of honesty, accountability and transparency with regard to fundraising.

In 2010 Arthritis Research UK identified 10 key goals which we will be aiming to achieve over the next 10 years.
