General fundraising has been hit very hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of fundraising events have been cancelled and many charities, particularly smaller ones, are struggling to maintain services because of this huge reduction in income. Musculoskeletal problems impact all sectors of society from children to the elderly; please support us this Christmas in helping to make a difference through donating to Joint Action.

It's been a year like no other, and while much of the world's attention has been focused on the disease COVID-19, the needs of people with musculoskeletal disease have not gone away and sadly in many cases the need has grown. We know that thousands of people across the UK have experienced long waits for surgery and cancellations of other medical appointments. The British Orthopaedic Association has continued to focus on the needs of these patients, and Joint Action, its research appeal, is forging ahead with ambitious plans for 2021 to award new grants. 

We raise funds to support the development of clinical trials in trauma and orthopaedics. In 2019 we awarded funding for the appointment of three Surgical Specialty Leads to facilitate clinical trials in our specialty and in early 2021 we will be announcing new funding for two clinical trial units.

About the charity

Did you know there are over 20 million people in the UK living with a musculoskeletal condition? That’s about a third of the population. We help patients by raising funds for research to improve Orthopaedic treatment, restoring mobility and giving people back their freedom and independence.
