AONT is a not-for-profit organisation partly funded by the NT Government. It is run mainly by volunteers, assisted by two part-time employees and is administered by a Board.
We strive to provide support services and relevant information to improve the understanding of arthritis and osteoporosis.
We promote healthy lifestyles and self-management to reduce the burden of arthritis and osteoporosis.
No referrals are needed and we welcome all enquiries.
Our NT Government funding is for services to the Darwin and Palmerston areas only.
Thank you to the people who made the effort prior to the election on 2 July to tell their local MP how arthritis affects them and to call for better arthritis programs.
MPs and policy makers need to understand the impact of arthritis on people’s lives or they will never give arthritis the attention it deserves.
