Juvenile Arthritis Research is a charity making a difference to the lives of those affected by juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). We are a parent-led charity with direct experience of JIA, and are run entirely by volunteers. JIA is an autoimmune condition where the body attacks the joints causing inflammation, pain and reduced mobility.

Our vision is a world where no child has to suffer from arthritis. Our core aims include research to find a cure for JIA, raising awareness that children and young people get arthritis and providing support to children and their families affected by JIA. We rely entirely on fundraising and donations, with every penny raised going directly towards the work we do.

If you or your child have just been diagnosed with JIA, start here to find the information and support you need.
