What would a world without barriers look like for people with arthritis?

Arthritis and other related conditions are the leading cause of pain and disability in the UK, but we know that more support is needed to help people with arthritis live their lives without limits.

The Disability Unit is currently developing a National Strategy for Disabled People to address the needs of people living with disabilities and long-term health conditions. Support that is designed to help people with arthritis and other related conditions needs to be at the heart of the strategy. The Unit has launched a public survey for people living with disabilities or health conditions and their carers to share what barriers they experience and what solutions they want to see.


If you’d like the share your thoughts and help shape the strategy for people with arthritis, you can get involved here:


The survey looks at every aspect of daily life and will take 20 to 30 minutes to complete. If you need support in completely the survey please contact the Disability Unit:
