Physical branch meetings are currently cancelled due to COVID-19. However there are virtual activities being run by some branches. Please contact your local branch for more information.

We hope you find the information on these pages helpful. Our team is working tirelessly to provide up to date advice in relation to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic. Record numbers of people are now turning to NASS for support, and we hope to be here for everyone. Our helpline and advice service are only possible thanks to donations from people like you.

If you are able to make a donation to NASS today, we'd be so grateful.


NASS Community Engagement Events

Join us at one of our NASS community engagement events around the UK. Meet others with axial SpA (AS), learn what services are available near you, and take away the tools to support you in managing your AS. Come in with questions and walk out with answers!

NASS events feature practical talks and activities delivered by rheumatologists, physiotherapists, branch representatives and members of the NASS team. Delegates will have plenty of time to share personal experiences and we hope you will leave with new friendships, a full complement of self-care techniques and a greater ability to support others across the axial SpA (AS) community.

Members Day 2020

We are currently developing a programme for an online alternative Members Day 2020 event, including the AGM, to take place on Saturday 13th June.
