History of the charity

Diane Wynne-Fitzgerald was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2000. She set up a self-help group at King George Hospital, with the help of Dr. Guy Dabrera, her Consultant Rheumatologist and Joan Woolston another RA patient.
The group began meeting in The Rheumatology Department in May 2002 and held meetings twice a month as a self-help group. In 2006 the group rented an office at Cardinal Heenan Centre where they expanded their programme of
disease management. In September 2010 it was registered as a charity and moved to The Cranbrook Centre, Valentines Park, in August 2015.
