Welcome to the community for people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This is run by the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) and exists to help you find support and information from other people living with RA. You may be newly diagnosed or have had RA for some time or you might not have a diagnosis yet - everyone is welcome! NRAS also support people with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and other forms of inflammatory arthritis.
NRAS is a UK based charity providing support, information and advocacy for people with rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis, their families, friends and carers. Our vision is for everyone with RA to be able to live the life they want to.
We have a helpline which is open Mon-Fri, 9.30am - 4.30pm and is free for landlines. We also have a huge range of free information booklets available to order or download from our website.... read more
I have Cerebral Palsy. I have had it since birth. I'm adult now.
What I have found is that there is a lot of information out there for parents who have children with Cerebral Palsy.
However, there is not a lot of support and information for adults with the condition. This is bad because Cerebral Palsy is treated like a childhood condition. This is surprising as it is not a progressive condition. People with Cerebral Palsy do not fall off the face of the earth when they hit eighteen years old. 1 in every 400 children are affected by cerebral palsy. These children will have this chronic condition for life. So if you want to share your experiences of Cerebral Palsy in adulthood. This is the place to do it.
