Approximately 12,000 children and young people in the UK have Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) which represents 1 child in every 1000 under the age of 16. JIA is one of the commonest causes of physical disability in childhood yet many people are unaware children can get inflammatory arthritis.  

We have set up a new service called JIA-at-NRAS, to raise awareness of JIA, provide information and support to families, campaign at government level to ensure that the needs of families, children and young people affected by JIA are understood and prioritised.
