Welcome To CCAA

Kids With Arthritis

Founded in 1985, The CCAA (Children’s Chronic Arthritis Association) is a leading charity run by people who have been affected by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (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

Countdown to the next Family Support Weekend

9 – 11 September 2016, Hollowford Centre, Peak District

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.
