Nearly four million Australians of all ages are affected by arthritis, and this number is expected to almost double by 2050. It is the most significant cause of pain and disability in Australia, forcing many to take early retirement, at significant financial, social and emotional cost.
Arthritis NSW offers education, support and health services to empower people suffering from arthritis to improve the quality of their lives. These include the Arthritis Infoline, camps for children with juvenile arthritis and their families, Rural Health Program, publications, educational events, gentle-exercise classes and public awareness campaigns. Your support will go towards delivery of these services and development of new programs.
Whether you choose to make a once-off donation, become a regular giver, support our work through a corporate partnership, or leave a gift in your Will, your contribution will be greatly appreciated by the people we support.
“My involvement with Arthritis NSW has been exceptionally good for me. I was involved in a local support group which helped me to look beyond my arthritis and focus on who, how, and what I can do to help others. My daughter and I raised $6,400 for Arthritis NSW running the City to Surf and I’m a workplace giver through my employer Australia Post.” Jacqueline Payne, valued Member and supporter of Arthritis NSW who has lived with psoriatic arthritis for over eight years.
