National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) St Helens Group


The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society provides support and information for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, their families, friends, Carers and health professionals with an interest in Rheumatoid Arthritis.


The St Helen’s NRAS Group is a source of ongoing information, education and support to encourage people to be more active in managing their disease. The group is an opportunity to hear from speakers (e.g. from local Rheumatology department) and meet other people who live with RA.

The group meets once every other month in The Gallery at The United Reformed Church, King Street, St. Helens, WA10 2JZ from 6.30pm to 8pm (there is a free car park next to the church and a disabled lift up to the first floor where The Gallery is located.).

National freephone helpline (0800 298 7650) for information and support.
