Arthritis Action

Arthritis Action is the only UK charity giving hands on help to combat arthritis pain through self management and lifestyle advice.

Our aim is to empower people with arthritis to take control of their lives, manage their condition and reduce the need for medical intervention.

What we do

We give people access to physical therapies in their local area alongside personal dietary and nutritional advice to help individuals manage their arthritis. We can help people take early action against the onset of arthritis, manage the pain it can cause and enjoy life to the full.

We run a membership system for those who want an ongoing relationship with the charity and to access our membership benefits. Members receive a programme of active help and support to assist with managing their arthritis. This concentrates on healthy eating and the provision of physical therapies

Staying mentally well and active at home

We are all spending more time at home than we might like, so staying physically active and mentally well are now more important than ever. We are keen to ensure everyone living with arthritis sustains their healthy lifestyles, exercises regularly and maintains good mental health even if that means remaining at home.

Exercise Videos

Many people living with a long-term health condition find it difficult to attend exercise classes. To help them, Arthritis Action recently launched a series of online chair based exercises developed with the aim of helping those with hip, knee or spinal Osteoarthritis more mobile and active. 

To access the videos please see our website (external link).

Exercise and Activity Directory

Many people living with a long-term health condition also find exercising challenging. To support them, we launched an Exercise and Activity Directory signposting webpage to help people find the help and support they may need within their county to get active.

To access the directory please see our website (external link).

Mental Health Directory

Many people living with a long-term health condition also experience mental health difficulties, such as stress or anxiety. To enable people to find the help and support they may need we have listed mental health organisations by county offering help and support to people experiencing mental health difficulties. 

To access the directory please see our website (external link).
