Situation

Arthritis can be a painful debilitating disease and most people don't expect it to happen to children, but childhood arthritis affects 1 in a 1000 children. It can be a very isolating disease that is little understood especially when it happens to a child.

Solution

SNAC aim to pull together the wider community affected by childhood arthritis and share information and knowledge that will help families to cope with this disease.
