The National Osteoporosis Society is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to ending the pain and suffering caused by osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis causes bones to become fragile and more likely to break. It can lead to painful and debilitating fractures, height loss and severe curvature of the spine. Osteoporosis affects almost 1 in 2 women and 1 in 5 men over 50 in the UK. Broken bones caused from osteoporosis can rob people of their independence, mobility and quality of life. 

The National Osteoporosis Society wants a brighter future for people with fragile bones. However, we cannot achieve this goal without the help of our supporters. Gifts in Wills fund over a third of our important work which includes: 

Support for people with osteoporosis and their families. Our Freephone Helpline is staffed by specialist osteoporosis nurses and answers the calls of help from those unable to obtain information from elsewhere. We also provide detailed information booklets, which we are continually updating, and a network of over 118 regional support groups that hold regular meetings from tea mornings to talks from health professionals.

Research into the causes, prevention and treatment of osteoporosis in the hope of eventually finding a cure.

Working with healthcare professionals to facilitate greater understanding of the needs of people with osteoporosis and provide consistent care across the NHS.

  Lobbying  issues affecting people with osteoporosis including improved treatment options and patient care as well as access to vital services. 

 Raise awareness of osteoporosis within the general public and promote better bone health for everyone.

Osteoporosis can happen to anyone, but it is not an inevitable part of ageing. Every single donation helps us to carry on the fight against osteoporosis and make this a disease of the past. By including the National Osteoporosis Society in your will today, you will be helping to prevent unnecessary fragility fractures for future generations while helping those living with the condition receive the support and care that they need. Thank you.
