TELFORD & WREKIN ARTHRITIS SUPPORT GROUP
In 2004 the Telford branch of Arthritis Care split from the national charity and became an independent group known as The Telford & Wrekin Arthritis Support Group. The group was granted charitable status by the Charity Commission the same year.
The object of the group is to work with and for all people with arthritis in the catchment area of Telford & Wrekin Borough, and promote their health, well being and independence through services, support, self help ,influence and information. The group holds bi-monthly social evenings with occasional speakers, outings and trips (all on wheelchair friendly coaches), and arranges an annual holiday. Hydrotherapy sessions have been held on a weekly basis at the PRH hospital, where members can do gentle exercise in warm water with the help of a Physiotherapist. A newsletter with information, hints and tips, and details of forthcoming events is published quarterly.
We welcome new members and membership at present is £10.00 per year. You do not have to suffer from arthritis to become a member, so if you or someone in the family suffers from arthritis, then why not come and join us.
