Everyone can help

Volunteers without arthritis, lupus or myositis who are not on any treatment are extremely important to our research efforts.

Comparing blood samples from volunteers with and without arthritis or lupus leads to the identification of processes in the body that may be responsible for driving these conditions. This in turn can lead to development of new treatments to block these processes.

Check out ‘Health research: making the right decision for me’ – a short animation produced jointly by the Nuffield Council on Bioethics & Mosaic Films to learn more about participating in research!

If you know of anyone who would like to help such as friends, brothers, sisters (or any other young person!) please do let us know.

Lauren and Polly Livermore

One of amazing Young People, Lauren from Cardiff, raised a total of £1,198 with the help of her school Ysgol Gyfun Plasmawr.

She spoke in school assemblies about her condition and how it affects her life as part of her fundraising and awareness raising.

She is a brave and fantastic member of Young People United and we really appreciate her support!

Thank you Lauren, and to her friends, family and school that helped too!
