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, however we are happy to send resources anywhere else in the Territory.
We are affiliated with Arthritis Australia and work with them and Arthritis organisations in other states.
