Room opens at 1:50pm presentation starts at 2pm. Please be on time.

Our online information sessions are for adults with arthritis, MSK or related conditions e.g. fibromyalgia, lupus, gout. Also, for health care professionals and carers supporting people living with arthritis. They offer a chance to learn about managing arthritis and related conditions, hear from guest speakers and find out more about the support provided by Versus Arthritis in local areas.


We have final spaces for two young people aged 18-25 currently living in Wales to apply for our Faro placement opportunity! Given that our programme is fully funded, it's important to us to reach out to as many organisations as possible who either work with young people or have the capacity to spread the word to them about this fantastic opportunity. 

The future spending purposes for dormant assets funding in Wales.


The Welsh Government is consulting on the future spending purposes for dormant assets funding in Wales. The National Lottery Community Fund is conducting the consultation on behalf of The Welsh Government.

A dormant asset is a financial product, such as a bank account, that the customer has not used for many years, and which the provider has been unable to reunite with. The National Lottery Community Fund has been responsible for its distribution in Wales, which has totalled £28 million since the scheme was established in 2008.

The Welsh Government is proposing four potential options to consider: children and young people, the climate and nature emergencies, financial inclusion and community action. It is unlikely to be able to fund all four options and will need to prioritise.

The consultation will close on 28 February 2024. We invite you to respond. You can read the consultation and respond on The Welsh Government’s website.

The National Lottery Community Fund is hosting a series of information events for you to find out more. There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and share your initial thoughts. The events will take place online on 9 and 10 of January.
