Online Arthritis Action Groups
https:/www.arthritisaction.org.uk/media-centre/events/
We are pleased to announce we are running Arthritis Action Group meetings online via Zoom, including a group for Leicestershire. The meetings are a way to connect with other people with arthritis, share experiences and tips, and support each other. Participants will need to contact us directly for the log in instructions for the meeting, and we have produced How To guides for those not familiar with using Zoom.
