Merger with Arthritis Care

On 1st November 2017 Arthritis Research UK and Arthritis Care joined together so that we can do more to help people with arthritis to live full and active lives.

Arthritis Research UK and Arthritis Care have a shared ambition to support people with arthritis to live full and active lives.

The unmet need of people with arthritis is substantial and by coming together, we will have a greater impact on the 10 million people currently living with the condition.

Together we will do more to change attitudes towards arthritis, provide more and better support, and research for treatments, interventions and cures. We will strengthen our collective voice, and press for change to improve the lives of those living with arthritis.

There will be a transitional period while the merged charity takes shape and some changes are likely. During this time, our services, support, care and research will be unaffected. We’ll continue to update you here about the changes we are making.

If you have further questions / need more information, please get in touch with us at:
