Thank you to everyone who participated in our "Faces of Arthritis" campaign. The campaign was a great success in raising awareness that people of all ages and from all walks of life live with arthritis. Thank you for sharing your journeys to help others better understand the hopes, dreams and challenges of people living everyday with arthritis.

Arthritis is an 'invisible' disease, and by looking at someone you cannot tell of their suffering. The aim of this campaign is to break down this barrier and bring awareness to the different Faces of Arthritis who demonstrate resilience and perseverance each day.
A common misconception of arthritis is that it's "just a part of growing older". Another part of this campaign is to raise awareness that children and people of working age get arthritis too and there are measures for managing pain.
This campaign is for anyone living with arthritis and we hope you share your experiences with us and the wider community.
