Childrens Chronic Arthritis Association (CCAA)
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) can strike at any age, and take one of several forms, but what is similar about the disease, is the pain and frustration that affects the child, and the feeling of disbelief that affects the whole family.
The CCAA is a leading charity run by people who have been affected by JIA and are passionate about supporting others and providing a support network for children with arthritis and their families.
Services we provide include:
- Family weekends - We organise family support weekends twice a year to enable families to meet others for networking and JIA support.
- Family support - We provide emotional and practical support to families living with the effects of JIA.
- Raising awareness - We actively raise awareness of childhood arthritis in the community through fundraising and events around England.
