Welcome to Birmingham Arthritis Resource Centre

The BARC vision is to enable people with arthritis to have an improved quality of life and greater long-term independence through education about their diseases. This information will be provided in a variety of forms and aimed at the multi-cultural society that makes up Birmingham, particularly those who infrequently obtain conventional medical help, through partnership with local communities and the research environment of the University.

The fundamental aim is to promote ‘self care’ and ‘self-management’, supporting people with chronic and painful conditions to cope with their problems. We encourage clients to take an active role in managing their care. Knowledge about their specific conditions can enable approaches that prevent these conditions from getting worse and reduce the disability arising from incurable disease.
