What is campaigning
Campaigning is about getting change and making your community, your region or your country better. It's about making sure everyone has a voice.
Most of all, campaigning is a way to tackle issues that matter to you.
Campaigning can take all shapes and sizes. If you’ve ever bought Fairtrade coffee, taken part in something like the ice bucket challenge or signed a petition, you're a campaigner.
Anything that raises awareness, or that strives to change something, is campaigning.
What are we campaigning for?
There are three key areas that need urgent action if we want to push back the limits of arthritis for the 10 million people living in pain in the UK today.
We need local politicians to champion these areas by listening to people with arthritis and taking action in Parliament and at our councils.
Prevention is about making sure that the next generation don’t have to live with the pain, isolation and fatigue of arthritis.
Transformation is about changing the services and support available for people with arthritis.
Cure is all about harnessing the power of exceptional sceince to make everyday life better for all people with all kinds of arthritis, and championing the UK’s leading role in research.
