ARMA is the umbrella body providing a collective voice for the arthritis and musculoskeletal community in the UK.

Together, ARMA and its member organisations work to improve quality of life for around 10 million people in the UK with these conditions. Arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are disorders of the joints, bones and muscles, including back pain, as well as rarer autoimmune diseases.

They currently have 33 member organisations, ranging from specialised support groups for rare diseases to major research charities and national professional bodies. The NW ARMA Network has information about our members and the support that is available.
