Welcome to SNAC, our community site that shares information on JIA, events that we hold and much more.

JIA (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) affects about one in every thousand under 16s yet most people don’t even know that kids can get arthritis.

SNAC was set up by parents of kids with JIA to provide support and information for families affected by the condition. On our website you will find information and real life experience about

  • The various types of JIA and related conditions.
  • The therapies and medicines used to treat the condition
  • What is being done to improve the treatments and outcomes
  • How to cope, from first diagnosis onwards.

To anyone affected by JIA, we hope you find the content helpful and informative, we have worked with the Scottish Paediatric Rheumatology teams to ensure the content’s accuracy.
