Have your say on research
People with Parkinson's are the real experts on the condition - we make sure their voices are heard in research.
We bring together people affected by Parkinson's and researchers to develop and plan research projects.
Giving people with Parkinson's a voice in research leads to higher quality, more relevant research, which is more likely to make a difference.
How can I help?
People affected by Parkinson's - including partners, family members and friends - can play a crucial role in helping researchers in lots of ways, including with:
- planning and prioritising what areas to focus on in projects
- communicating research in simple terms
- highlighting practical issues that could stop people taking part in research
- seeing the bigger picture of what it's like to live with Parkinson's
- giving new ideas or insights
How do I get involved?
We've got lots of opportunities to make your voice heard - and make a crucial difference to Parkinson's research - right across the UK
Let us know you're interested in being a patient and public involvement volunteer and we'll send you more details.
