British Sjögren’s Syndrome Association logo

A self-help organisation with nearly 2000 members, the BSSA is dedicated to providing mutual support and information to individuals affected by this disabling disease. We have regional support groups throughout the UK whose members include sufferers and supporters who work together in helping one another cope with the day-to-day challenges of this debilitating and distressing condition. The BSSA also has a helpline and we award an annual research grant.
