Having any kind of arthritis can affect how you feel about yourself. It can help to share how you are feeling so others can support you.

In this section you’ll find advice about helplines and support groups, charities, financial support and benefits, social care and housing, aids and adaptations, support for carers and support from healthcare professionals.
