Annual Corporate Membership

The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS), is the only patient-led organisation in the UK specialising in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Due to its targeted focus on RA and JIA, NRAS provides truly expert and wide-ranging services to support, educate and campaign for people living with these complex autoimmune conditions, their families and the health professionals who treat them.

Our vision is to support all with RA or JIA to live life to the full, with an underpinning mission to:

  • support everyone living with the impact of RA or JIA at the start and every step of their journey
  • to inform – be their first choice for reliable information, and
  • empower all to have a voice and take control of their RA or JIA

Our corporate Members are very important to us in both raising awareness of these diseases and the work we do as well as contributing to the funding of our work.

NRAS has developed this Corporate Membership scheme to help businesses demonstrate their commitment to supporting the MSK community and in particular RA and JIA. The funds generated will allow the Society to continue to play an important role in supporting, informing, educating and advocating at all levels for all those affected by these diseases.
