As restrictions ease, I wanted to give you an update on our activities. For the moment we are continuing to run Arthritis Action Groups online, providing a place for people with arthritis to meet others, share experiences and learn about self-management. We’ve also recorded a webinar focused on Pain Management (link below), with tips for managing arthritis as we continue to negotiate a pandemic.
Arthritis Action Online Groups
Arthritis Action Groups are an opportunity for people with arthritis to talk with others and share their tips on how to manage their arthritis and stay active whilst at home, and we actively welcome new attendees.
We discuss a variety of self-management techniques. Participants will need to contact us directly for the log in instructions for the meeting, and we have produced “How To” guides for those not familiar with using Zoom.
- 6pm 14 June – Evening Midlands Arthritis Action Group

Pain Management in a Pandemic
The webinar focused on living with pain throughout the pandemic, and our experts addressed your most frequently asked questions on how to effectively manage arthritis pain.
