Arthritis Care

There are around 10 million people with arthritis in the UK. That’s 10 million individuals, plus their families, each affected in a unique way.

From high quality information and support to empower you to take control of your arthritis, to campaigning for change Arthritis Care is here for you.

Arthritis Care Ferndown - your local branch

What do we do?

We act as a local branch to Arthritic Care sufferers and provide a framework of monthly events and outings to support Ferndown and local area residents.

You are most welcome to join us or if you can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated.

Ferndown has an active volunteer committee group who spend a lot of their time helping members throughout the community.

Monthly awareness and social meetings

There are 11 monthly meetings each year plus we offer days out each month to help you get out more.

These outings allow you to:

Catch up on the latest Care information, have a wonderful day out or just meet existing or new membership friends.

Being arthritic does not mean you have to suffer alone in the confinements of your home. In each small way we can, we try to help; our aim is to make your life more pleasurable.

Where & when do we meet?

The first Saturday of each month for a social event, starting at 2pm Ferndown day centre, Penny's Walk Ferndown. The site is opposite Tesco.

What if I have no transport or have problems with mobility?

There are various options for attending these meetings, either via your own transport or if you live within our 'collect and return' zone we may be able to provide transport. This could collect and return you to and from your door.

Is there a membership fee?

In short yes. Our annual membership is only £14 per year paid in one sum (equal to just over 25p per week).

What do I do next?

Contact us by email or telephone, visit our website or join us on the first Saturday of the month.
