Arthritis Care – The Hardest Hit : Help us protect the welfare of people with arthritis


Arthritis Care teamed up with disability charities across the UK to launch a joint campaign challenging the government’s welfare reform agenda and cuts to disability benefit support.

We believe these cuts and changes to the welfare system, which are already causing great distress to large numbers of people, will disproportionately impact on people with arthritis, and we will campaign to ensure that their voice is heard.




We took part in the day of action on 11th May 2011 and marched in protest against the cuts.

If you need to talk to someone you can also con-tact our Helpline. We saw a 25% increase in calls about benefits following the Government’s welfare reform announcements.
