The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) was founded in 2001 and is the only UK charity specifically devoted to supporting adults and their families living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and children, young people and their families affected by juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and the health professionals treating RA and JIA.
How can JIA-at-NRAS help? if you are a parent/carer of a child or young person (under16) who has recently been diagnosed and you have more questions than answers, then please get in touch through email or call our helpline telephone. Our service is free and confidential. We also have comprehensive information about JIA on our JIA website along with information booklets including guidance for schools and parents for students with JIA; these can be downloaded or sent in the post.
