Get Involved

In the UK, there are an estimated 200,000 people currently living with AS 

We are the only charity dedicated to providing life-changing support to anyone affected, including friends and family.

We receive no government funding, and rely on the generosity of our supporters to enable us to continue our vital work.

There's loads of ways you can get involved. Whatever you do, you'll help people with AS by making sure they have someone to turn to for expert advice and support.

Together, we're stronger

Until NASS came along my understanding of AS was "like operating in the dark." NASS threw so much light on the issues, for which I will always be exceedingly grateful.
