National Arthritis Week appeal Donate This National Arthritis Week, 20-26 April 2020, please show your support by donating what you can and help us continue to make a positive difference to people living with this often invisible and misunderstood disease.We work to ensure that every person living with arthritis in Ireland is supported to live a full and active life, having access to appropriate health services and treatments. We enable people to enjoy an enhanced quality of life, by supporting them to better manage the devastating effects that arthritis can have on lives. With your support, we are able to: Drive research to identify the causes and improve our understanding of arthritis, and ultimately to find a cure. Operate our helpline, which answers over 2,000 calls every year from people looking for support, information and advice. Deliver approx. 40 self-management courses around Ireland each year which gives people with arthritis the tools they need to manage their arthritis more effectively. Provide local support to people in communities all over Ireland through our 20 branches which organise information evenings, walking groups and a wealth of other supports. Without your support much of what we do would simply not be possible. Thank you.
