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.

Suspension of NASS branches

All face to face meetings and services from NASS branches around the country are currently suspended. We know that NASS branches are a lifeline for people living with axial SpA (AS) and are pleased that many of our branches have embraced a new way of delivering sessions remotely. To enquire if your local branch is still meeting please call or email your local branch.

The protection of the health of our staff, colleagues and members will always be our highest priority. We will re-open our office and branches as soon as it is safe and practical to do so.

NASS events

Our Members Day and AGM will now take place virtually on 13 June. NASS Voices in Newcastle (October) and Bristol (November) are still scheduled to go ahead as planned but we will of course keep an eye on any developments and adjust our plans accordingly.

NASS shop

As our office is closed we are currently unable to process any orders from our online shop. For this reason we have removed all items from sale.
