It's a very exciting time ahead for the people of the Adelaide Hills as Kids Arthritis brings its popular Community Support Group to Aldgate!
This group has currently been running for the past 8 months down in the City of Tea Tree Gully and has proven to be a huge success supporting, connecting and empowering people within the community.
This free monthly group is all about self-development and having a safe space to attend every month to share and grow as a group. This group is open to anyone in the community with a different focus each month.
Children, their families, and carers living with Juvenile Arthritis particularly love the group, as they get to meet others living with the condition, but their children get to see that people in the community do care about what they are living with and want to help.
