Join Us. Join our Community

Help sort myths from reality with the advice and support that comes from joining our 4000 Members

“While I want to be positive and inspire others, I want to make it clear I still experience pain, flare-ups and heavy fatigue on an ongoing basis. I’ve accepted the condition isn’t going anywhere and know sometimes it’ll be more difficult than others, however, I’m certainly not letting this condition take control of my life.”

Richard Shire – NASS member

Join our community of over 4000 supportive members.

Like many of our members, Richard knows that some days he will face challenges but with NASS Membership, he now has support of people who understand what it’s like to live with axial SpA.

Before they joined NASS, fewer than 1 in 50 of our members knew where to get the support and advice they needed.

By joining us today, not only will you be able to connect with thousands of people living with axial SpA, you will also be joining us in our mission to improve care and drive down the delay to diagnosis.

Our members benefits include access to our thriving members forum, a free copy of our yearly AS News magazine,  and an invitation to our annual Members Day where you can meet other members and receive the latest advice on living well with the condition.

Once you have signed-up you will receive a membership card, usually within the first month of joining NASS.

Axial SpA works silently. We don’t.
