This week, from the 8th – 14th May, is Arthritis Care Week. According to the NHS, arthritis affects approximately 10 million people living in the UK. Whilst generally associated with the older population, in fact 15,000 of those affected are children and young people.
This year Arthritis Care are asking people to Wake up to Arthritis, to:
- Raise awareness of the seriousness of arthritis.
- Remove the barriers that get in the way of people’s lives.
- Ensure that people living with arthritis know we are here to help.
