CCAA is a charity supporting children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) in England and Wales and their families. The charity is run by a group of volunteers who have been affected by the condition through personal experiences. They are extremely passionate about supporting families and providing a local support network around the UK for children with arthritis and their families.

Support can mean different things to different people. So whether it be a quick chat on the phone, a Facebook message to us or attending one of our local or regional events, CCAA strive to offer emotional and practical support and do what we can, to help bring positive change for children and families. We know the value of peer support for children, young people, siblings and their parents/carers.

  • Local area groups on Facebook for parents/carers - one per county across England and Wales
  • Award badge scheme
  • Face to face, telephone support, resources, information on website
  • Collaborative work with other charities in the field to work on policy, campaigning etc Current focus is on mental health support for children and young people with paediatric rheumatological conditions like arthritis.
