The CCAA Family Support weekend’s are organised for the children and families that live with the effects of JIA.

For 25 years, CCAA have been organising weekends of fun activities for the kids and informative support sessions, led by Health Professionals, for the parents. Not only is the weekend a unique opportunity for your family to meet and share experiences with other families, the children meet others in similar situations, realising they are not alone and often leave with lasting friendships. 

Our aim is to provide you with an insight into the treatment and management of JIA, so that at the end of the weekend you feel more informed about JIA. Through the activities and sessions we run your children will also leave with the confidence that despite the disease, they can achieve anything they put desire.

We now run weekends in the North and the South of the UK to provide a wider support network for the children and families suffering with JIA, and each year they get bigger and better! Over the course of the weekend there are fun activities for the kids and informative support sessions run by Health Professionals and the CCAA volunteers, for the parents.

Why not come along to our next Family Support weekend and see what it’s all about for yourself! Book now to avoid disappointment as we have limited spaces available. 

Applications are now being taken for our 2018 Avon Tyrrell weekend. If you would like to book a place for your family please visit our online application form

We would like to send a huge thank you Lyon Projects for donating this fantastic video of the children at the Hollowford weekend in 2016. Lyon Projects came to the weekend to give us a platform to advertise the annual weekends that we organise.
