Support at the most vulnerable moment

From Simone’s story, you can see the emotions that hit after an arthritis diagnosis – shock, despair, confusion, isolation.

Arthritis Assist connects people like Simone, recently diagnosed with arthritis to their own fully trained peer mentor – who lives with arthritis themselves.

This peer mentor is best placed to provide emotional support after a diagnosis – because they understand what it’s like to have their world turned upside down.

And throughout the journey, they can provide advice based on their own personal experience – about everything from treatments to diets.  Right now, Arthritis Assist doesn’t exist in New South Wales. We urgently need to raise $15,000 to set up the program, to reach Simone and other people like her in our state.

Please, be there for Simone at her most vulnerable moment. Donate today.
