NRAS (the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society) are running a series of 10 UK based events helping those with RA to keep working. The workshops will be held throughout 2010 in cities all across the UK. They’re open to anyone with RA and they’re free. Each workshop will allow you to get information about talking to their employer and colleagues about RA, including:

  • sharing practical tips based on real-life experience

  • talking to experts, from employment lawyers to occupational therapists
  • finding out more about what disability law means for you
  • finding out more about handling your RA treatment and work commitments

The workshops will be held in:

  • London 24th February; Bristol 10th March;
  • Cardiff 11th March;
  • Manchester 18th May;
  • Birmingham 19th May;
  • Nottingham 20th May;
  • Glasgow 22nd June;
  • Londonderry 23rd June;
  • Portsmouth 7th July;
  • Reading 28th September.

(I don’t know what time of day – ring them and find out!)

What a surprise, there’s nothing in East Anglia. There never is. Come on guys. We’re a big bulge on the side of little ol’ England with FOUR counties in it that you’re not represented in! And yet Reading, an easy, no-changes 20 minute train ride from London, has a course! OK, whine over, back to publicising NRAS, whom I have a VERY high regard for! Maybe I’ll go the Reading one as I have friends nearby. (Yes, Maggie, that’s a hint.)

Registration is happening now, so to register or to find out more, ring them on 0845 458 3969 or visit http://www.nras.org.uk to register on line.
