Support Groups

Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA has a number of support groups which are led by volunteers. These groups provide participants with the opportunity to meet regularly with others in a similar situation. If you would like the opportunity to:

  • Talk freely about your experiences and feelings in a safe non-judgmental environment
  • Share helpful hints and practical tips
  • Receive and give encouragement and support to others
  • Socialise and make new friends
