Information and support

Having Parkinson's can feel overwhelming if you don't have the right information and support.

If you have Parkinson's - or you know someone who has - we can help. 

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.

About Parkinson's

Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition. This means it causes problems in the brain and gets worse over time.
