Arthritis causes pain, fatigue and isolation for 17.8 million people in the UK every single day. It can impact on the ability to work, our relationships and take away our independence. We don’t accept this. We are Versus Arthritis. We are volunteers, healthcare professionals, researchers and friends, all
doing everything we can to push back against arthritis. We’re reaching out to everybody with the information and support they need, funding vital research and changing the way society sees arthritis.
Together we’ll keep running, researching, inﬂuencing, volunteering, advising, chatting, baking, listening. We won’t stop until no-one has to tolerate living with the pain, fatigue and isolation of arthritis.
To achieve our ambition to ensure that one day no one will live with the pain, fatigue and isolation that arthritis causes, we want to be accurately reflecting the UK’s diverse population. Currently 44% of our workforce are disabled or have a long-term health condition and 38% of our workforce have a direct relationship with arthritis. We are a Disability Confident Committed employer with an action plan to become Disability Confident Leaders soon.
We also are proud to offer working environments, technology, spaces and practices that foster our ‘Flex’ principles of collaboration, flexibility, inclusion and wellbeing and all colleagues have access to our Employee Assistance Programme.
