Although we are Gloucestershire's No. 1 Arthritis charity, there is still a limit to what GAT can achieve,
so we regularly re-assess priorities for grants and other expenditure.
We also recognise that we need to support the work of Orthopaedic and Physiotherapy
teams as well as those working to help Rheumatoid arthritis patients.
With over 120 children being treated for juvenile arthritis across the County
we will, from time to time, organise specific fundraising projects directed solely at their needs.
There is an obvious limit to the geography we cover, given our charitable objects.
We are determined to remain focussed on helping the
people of Gloucestershire, but will also help hospitals and clinics serving people living in South Gloucestershire.
Research can be very costly, especially for a local charity like ours, but we have been
able to fund small-scale projects managed by Bristol University.
Future research will depend very much on our ability to raise additional funds.
