Arthritis Assist is a telephone support service developed by Arthritis Queensland. It is an evidence based-program using the Peers for Progress model – recognised world-wide as a leading guide for designing peer-support programs.  

We know all too well that life with arthritis can be daunting, uncertain or overwhelming. You are not alone - Arthritis Assist can connect you with a fully trained peer-mentor who will phone you at a time that suits you.
