Arthritis New Zealand

Arthritis New Zealand's mission is to improve the lives of people affected by Arthritis.

They do this in a variety of ways: information and education, public awareness, direct support, advocacy and the funding of research.

The Arthritis New Zealand national office is based in Wellington. Delivery of services is primarily through their three regional offices (Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch), and centres in Wanganui, Rotorua, Hamilton, Dunedin and Timaru.

Core Services include:

Arthritis Education Clinics:

Arthritis Educators provide clinics on various forms of arthritis, pain management, exercise etc. Individualised self management plans, follow up and referrals/liaison with other health providers.

Information Seminars and Community Education Talks:

Arthritis Educators are available for Community Education talks and arrange topical seminars with specialist guest speakers. They have a very good range of informative brochures on the wide ranging arthritis types. Their website (below) is very informative and their magazine "Joint Support" is produced quarterly.

Living a Healthy Life:

This is a self-management course for people with chronic conditions.

Referral to appropriate exercise and hydrotherapy classes.

Some services are available only to members, but their arthritis educator service and information pamphlets are available free of charge.

We also have a toll free line (0800) 663 463 and telephone clinics can be arranged.

Live Facebook sessions run currently on Mondays 7.00pm – 9.00pm.
