Policy and public affairs

Arthritis Research UK in Parliament

The Policy, Public Affairs and Campaigns team seeks to bring about change that enables people with musculoskeletal conditions to say “I am in control, independent and recognised”. We want to achieve a positive, tangible different to their lives and push back the limits of arthritis. We seek to do this by influencing Government and its associated bodies so that they can get the big decisions right.

  • We seek to understand problems and identify solutions that are within the gift of Government to take action on
  • We undertake activities to influence Government to take these actions
  • We want to involve our supporters and people with arthritis in asking Government to take these actions.
  • Nurse and patient at home
