Welcome To CCAA

Children's Chronic Arthritis Association

Founded in 1985, The Children’s Chronic Arthritis Association (CCAA) is a leading charity run by people who have been affected by JIA and are passionate about supporting others and providing a support network for children with Arthritis and their families. 

We offer emotional and practical support to maximise choices and opportunities and raise awareness of childhood arthritis in the community. We organise family information weekends to enable families to meet others for networking, support and information about JIA.

We want to hear from you

Your Stories

We feature inspiring stories by parents and children living with JIA to help support others. We want to raise awareness of just how inspiring they can be and what they can achieve despite the daily struggles they experience.

How you can help and where the money goes

All money donated or raised for CCAA is spent directly on the children who suffer from JIA. It helps towards the arranging and funding of our projects, in particular our JIA Family Support Weekend’s. The weekend’s provide a unique opportunity for the children and their families to learn more about the disease, how to cope with it and meet other families in the same situation.
