Through a donation made by The Peter Cruddas Foundation the National Osteoporosis Society has been able to develop a new UK Helpline and Information Centre to build much needed capacity. The new 'Peter Cruddas Suite' now houses a team of specialist Helpline Nurses who answer over 14,000 calls a year from those living with osteoporosis, their carers and health professionals. The development of an information centre is enabling the charity to transform, improve and add to its range of existing services in order to meet the escalating needs of millions of sufferers.
The Peter Cruddas Suite was officially opened by the President of the National Osteoporosis Society, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, on 5th February 2009.
The Foundation has also sponsored the production of information leaflets and The Bone Factor Tour.
