Meet the people of MOVE

Of the 6.8 million Aussies living with debilitating conditions  
such as arthritis, chronic back pain and osteoporosis -   
60% are aged 25-64, debunking the myth that these 
conditions are more prevalent in the older population.

It may not be surprising if you know someone who lives their life with a painful musculoskeletal condition. 

That person might be a family member or a friend, maybe a work colleague or neighbour. That person might even be you. 

Without your donation we will not be able to continue providing necessary support for people living with chronic musculoskeletal conditions such as lupus, osteoporosis, arthritis, fibromyalgia and over 100 other conditions. 

Please take the time to make your donation today. 

Thank you.

PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY TO OUR SPRING APPEAL

Help us raise awareness about the impact of living with musculoskeletal pain and connect people to vital services like our National Help Line, information resources and peer support groups. We want to continue to provide best practice professional development for health professionals to improve the way musculoskeletal care is delivered.


SUPPORT OUR APPEAL

We need your help in the next chapter of our journey… People like you remain the soul of MOVE.

It's almost half a century since rheumatologist Les Koadlow founded an organisation where people with arthritis could come together and get support.

Together with your help, we’ve realised this vision on a national scale.

MOVE muscle, bone & joint health works to support the 6.8 million people living with musculoskeletal conditions all across the country.

Our services have evolved, but our heart is unchanged – we're still for people with arthritis, osteoporosis and the 150 chronic conditions that affect muscles, bones and joints.

Many ordinary Australians have helped to build on Les’ legacy for almost 50 years, like our youth ambassador Sam.

When we launched our latest research report, Sam’s grandparents Robin and John were proud of the way Sam shared his experience of living with juvenile psoriatic arthritis to highlight the impact of these conditions on everyday Australians.

It’s these relationships that inspire us to keep moving forward to provide the best possible care and support for people like you. With your help, we can reach even more people living with muscle, bone and joint conditions in our community.

6.8 million reasons why MOVE needs your help.

Almost one in three Australians have a musculoskeletal condition.

We want to raise awareness about the impact of living with musculoskeletal pain and connect people to vital services like our National Help Line, information resources and peer support groups. We want to continue to provide best practice professional development for health professionals to improve the way musculoskeletal care is delivered.

We’ve also got big plans.

We’re developing a toolkit that will help people stay on top of their health and in good employment - 60% of people with these conditions are of working age.

And it’s not just adults who are affected. So we’re developing a smartphone app to help younger people stay informed.

At the heart of our current work and future plans are people like you. That’s why our purpose is “to improve the quality of life of people with, or are at risk of developing, muscle, bone and joint conditions.”

This is what started Les and MOVE on this path almost 50 years ago.

Your donation today will help us continue our journey.
