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

Founded 1999
