Arthritis Research UK is the leading authority on arthritis in the UK, conducting scientific and medical research into all types of arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions. It is the UK's fourth largest medical research charity and the only charity solely committed to funding high quality research into the cause, treatment and cure of arthritis.
Here in the North East we are currently funding research into the "reprogramming" of our body's own stem cells in order for our own body to regrow healthy bone and cartilage. This will eventually rule out the necessity of joint replacement surgery.
We also produce informative and authoritive Information Booklets which are all free of charge and are all available to download from our website.
We are keen to talk to anyone who would like to fundraise for the charity through our existing groups, through their own events and activities or by getting involved in events organised by the charity, which range from Zip Wires to Balls!
