Our two regular appeals generally occur in May/June and November/December each year. These appeals are purpose-driven, varying depending on where funds are most needed for the development and delivery of services.
Many thanks to all the generous people who support our special fundraising appeals.
Rural Health Program Appeal
The program was developed to give people in rural communities access to information and education to help them better manage their condition, with the aim of Living Well with Arthritis.
Following the success of these events, we now run the program annually, to reach more NSW regional communities that have limited access to health education and services.
Camps for Kids with JIA
Arthritis affects 1 in 5 people in New South Wales and it does not discriminate. The latest statistics show that juvenile arthritis now affects 1 in every 1,000 Australian children, currently 3000 in NSW.
For young people, the pain of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is not only physical. It can impact their self-esteem and confidence and undermine their sense of adventure, feelings of belonging and academic achievement.
Arthritis NSW (ANSW) needs your support to help the many children and families affected by this disease. Our programs include two annual children’s camps, Camp Twinkletoes and Camp Footloose, which provide education and support to families and young people, and webinars featuring health professionals who directly address JIA issues.
