The National Osteoporosis Society is working towards a future without osteoporosis. In osteoporosis, bones become weak and break easily. Over 3 million people in the UK are affected. We provide Support to people living with osteoporosis through our helpline, information resources, and our local support groups and events. We assist the development of quality NHS Care of people with osteoporosis, by training healthcare professionals, and developing Fracture Liaison Services. We focus on the Prevention of avoidable osteoporosis by promoting bone health. Finally, we work towards the eventual Cure of osteoporosis by collaborating with researchers and through our grants programme.
