The Arthritis Research Campaign (arc), founded in 1936, raises funds to promote medical research into the cause, treatment and cure of arthritic conditions; to educate medical students, doctors and allied healthcare professionals about arthritis; and provide information to the general public. We are now called Versus Arthritis.

Too many people accept the daily pain, fatigue and isolation that arthritis causes. Too many dismiss it as ‘just a bit of arthritis’. But we don’t accept it.

We are constantly campaigning to challenge the misconceptions around arthritis and to ensure that arthritis is recognised as priority in the UK.

Together we’re stronger. With your time, energy and generosity, we’ll continue to develop breakthrough treatments, campaign relentlessly for arthritis to be seen as a priority, challenge how people see arthritis and ensure that everyone has access to the best information, advice and support they need, whenever they need it.
