Get involved

Did you know NASS are the only UK registered charity dedicated to people with AS? We’ve been here since 1976 and while life for people with AS has improved, there is an urgent need to achieve more.

Get involved with NASS to help reduce the delay to diagnosis and support everyone affected by axial SpA (AS)

Axial SpA (AS) takes on average 8.5 years to diagnose: we want to slash this to three years. And although 1 in 200 adults in the UK are diagnosed with AS, public awareness is far too low.

We aren’t funded by the government. It’s people like you who make the difference, and your help will transform the futures of people with AS.
