Dear UK based readers
We have recently been made aware of a telephone call that is being made by people saying they are from an organisation called Arthritis Awareness Week. The person asks if you have arthritis and are having trouble sleeping. They then offer a home visit by one of their advisers to talk about beds, etc. NRAS would just like to make it known that this company has no affiliation to us and that people should be very wary about giving out any personal information.
Over the years we have heard about similar calls being made from companies that say they have some link to arthritis and are offering home visits. We would just like to reiterate that we do not offer home visits or pass your details on to any organisations that do. If you receive a call like this and you are concerned, if you can take as much information as possible you can pass it on to your local police for investigation. Alternatively you can call us to discuss your concerns.
