The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) is a NATIONAL charity supporting children and young people with juvenile arthritis, a long term medical condition that affects children and young people in all aspects of their lives.
We provide social activities and campaign for better services and we have a telephone support helpline and a website full of invaluable information on the condition.
Children and Young People over 16 can contact us on the helpline directly and parents and carers of younger children can call for advice and support.
In pre covid times, throughout the year we hold family fun day events for children, young people with juvenile arthritis and their families, which are free and accessible to everyone. We are now hosting events online and please see our website for more details.
JIA-at-NRAS is there for everyone diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis at the start of their journey and whenever you need us along the way. Get in touch for support and advice via the phone, facebook, twitter or our website.
