Provide a support network for affected families and raise awareness of childhood arthritis
The objective of the charity is to provide a national support network for children with arthritis and their families through the provision of factual, practical and emotional support. It aims to pull together the wider community of affected children in Scotland as well as raise public awareness of childhood arthritis. This gives a little more information. JIA (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) affects about one in every thousand under 16s yet most people don’t even know that kids can get arthritis.
SNAC was set up by parents of kids with JIA to provide support and information for families affected by the condition. On their website you will find information and real life experience about
The various types of JIA and related conditions.
