Parliamentary Meetings

Among interesting meetings this week, were events held by Age UK and Arthritis Research UK.

Arthritis is the single biggest cause of disability and pain across the UK with 10 million people living with arthritis, and other musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain. The pain, fatigue and lack of mobility caused by arthritis affects every aspect of a person’s life, making everyday tasks such as making a cup of tea, travelling to work or getting out of bed extremely difficult.

MPs heard how we can help tackle issues affecting older people locally and across the country, including loneliness and isolation, social care and ‎the importance of a decent income.
