Local Groups

There are over 20 branches and groups across Scotland. The network is for people of are of all ages and backgrounds, to come together and enjoy great support and an opportunity to share in social and information activities.

The branches are run by volunteers and offer:

  • a social network
  • support through sharing experiences
  • information about managing arthritis
  • an opportunity to generate awareness locally about arthritis and Arthritis Care
  • And much, much more!

You can also become a member of Arthritis Care (we are a membership organization) via an Arthritis Care branch or group but you do not need to be a member to take part in the activities.

If you're interested why not come along to a meeting to experience the fun and friendship. Locate your nearest branch by following the links on the left/right or by calling the Scotland Office on 0141 954 7776.
