Who is TAG

The Arthrogryposis Group are a national UK charity for people affected by Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), a term used to describe over 300 conditions that cause multiple curved joints in areas of the body at birth.  Arthrogryposis is not very well known among health professionals or the general public. The number of doctors who have the knowledge and/or experience of AMC is low and we want to change this.

TAG’s Goals

  • To provide support and information to those with Arthrogryposis and their families
  • To set up as many children’s TAG clinics throughout the UK as we can
  • To send out as many leaflets to medical professionals so they can help and support their patients or future patients with Arthrogryposis
  • We hold small regional events all around the UK for our members to attend, talk and have fun while supporting each other
  • We hold a family weekend every year, allowing our members to meet each other, talk and relax. It also gives them the opportunity to speak to the medical and non-medical professionals who are attending that weekend to give talks on their specialised subjects
