Kids Like Us
Kids Like Us
Kids Like Us is a local charity supporting children, young people and families affected by juvenile arthritis in the West Midlands.
There are currently around 1200 children who suffer from arthritis in the area. The cause of this disease is not clear and as yet there is no cure, so that is why we also support work that is looking for answers.
Very few people realise that arthritis affects people of all ages. We try to raise awareness so that no one feels like they are on their own
Our mission is to provide information and support to children living with arthritis and their families in the West Midlands.
Kids Like Us aims to:
- We will fund activity that directly supports the children and their families.
- We will fund an annual "Breakaway" activity weekend for a group of teenagers with Arthritis. Enabling them to meet others with a shared understanding and explore what they can achieve.
- We aim to create a support and information network for parents and children run by parents. "By parents for parents"
- We aim to increase the awareness of arthritis in children, supporting earlier diagnosis and increased support for those living with the disease and their families.
