Sometimes, no one understands what you are going through quite like someone else who is in the same boat.
Arthritis Queensland Support Groups provide a wonderful opportunity for people with various musculoskeletal conditions to come together to improve their well being through discussion and other activities.
Support Groups are located around the State and function in accordance with the principle of being a self-help group. Members share information, ideas, and experiences which help to meet their own needs, as well as supporting others.
Arthritis Queensland has many successful Support Groups throughout the State, run by very generous individuals who volunteer their time. We are very grateful for the tireless work of these dedicated individuals who provide much need support to people in their local communities. To all of the wonderful people in our Support Groups who do tremendous things we say THANK YOU!
