Founded in 1942, Arthritis Action is the only UK charity giving hands-on, practical help to combat the pain of arthritis through self-management and lifestyle advice. We offer people with arthritis a holistic self-management approach, looking at both the physical and mental aspects of arthritis.
Arthritis Action Group
Our Nottingham Arthritis Action Group provides an opportunity to meet others living in your area with arthritis, share hints and tips and find out about Self-Management. We have speakers from relevant services, groups and support organisations. Please contact us for upcoming group dates.
During lockdown we have moved our groups online, and are running them via Zoom. Please check our website for dates and information on how to join.
Many people living with a long-term health condition find it difficult to attend exercise classes. To help them,
Arthritis Action recently launched a series of online chair based exercises developed with the aim of helping those with hip, knee or spinal Osteoarthritis more mobile and active.
Exercise and Activity Directory
Many people living with a long-term health condition also find exercising challenging. To support them, we launched an
Exercise and Activity Directory signposting webpage in January 2020 to help people find the help and support they may need within their county to get active.
Mental Health Directory
Many people living with a long-term health condition also experience mental health difficulties, such as stress or anxiety. To enable people to find the help and support
they may need we have listed mental health organisations by county. Many of the NHS IAPT teams across the UK are listed as well as local Mind hubs and an array of other charitable organisations and services offering help and support to people experiencing
mental health difficulties.
