What we do

Diane Kay, who has Parkinson's, with Parkinson's UK local adviser Vicky Riddle

We're the Parkinson's charity that drives better care, treatments and quality of life. Together we can bring forward the day when no one fears Parkinson's.

We provide expert information on Parkinson's

We provide expert information on every aspect of Parkinson's so that people affected by the condition can stay in control of their lives, through:

If you have Parkinson's, or you know someone who has, you can turn to us for information and support.

There are many ways that you can access our free information and support.

We influence and fund groundbreaking research

We lead, influence and fund research to ensure new and better treatments in years, rather than decades.

People with the condition and their families set our research agenda, making decisions about the projects we fund and working in partnership with researchers at every stage.

We're the largest European charitable funder of Parkinson's research. So far, we've invested over £75million in groundbreaking research.

We offer support and promote opportunities to live life to the full

We offer friendship, support and opportunities to everyone with Parkinson's, their families and carers.

Our local networks allow people to meet others affected by the condition and get involved in local social and therapeutic activities.

Our online discussion forum offers the opportunity to share experiences with other people online.

We campaign and influence

We raise awareness, change perceptions and work in partnership to drive better services.

We campaign to make sure people living with Parkinson's are treated fairly and have access to the support they need.

Through the Excellence Network we work in partnership with health and social care professionals and decision makers to ensure high-quality care for everyone affected by Parkinson's, wherever they live.

We also improve understanding of Parkinson's by changing attitudes and challenging myths.

We fundraise to find a cure and improve life

Without the generosity of people like you, our work would not be possible. Supporters and volunteers are as vital to us as researchers and nurses.

Our work is totally dependent on donations. It's only with your help that we can continue our vital research projects, and provide support and information.

There are lots of ways you can get involved and support us.

Help us to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.
