Parkinson's UK Members' Day and 2018 AGM

Join other members of the Parkinson's community at our Members' Day and 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM). 

You'll share ideas and inspiration, learn about the impact we're all making, and help shape our future – as well as taking part in this year's AGM.

About the day

When: 11am-3.45pm, Saturday 20 October 2018
Where: Conference Aston, Aston University, Aston Street, Birmingham B4 7ET

We're delighted to announce that Paul Mayhew-Archer will be our host for the day. Paul has written some of the UK's most loved comedy shows – including The Vicar of Dibley and Mrs Brown's Boys – and has been a dedicated supporter and member of the charity since he was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2011.  

Check out the outline of the day, including details of the AGM.

What to expect on the day

Help shape our future

Mark Goodridge, Chair of the Board of Trustees, and Steve Ford, Chief Executive, will share information about the charity’s current plans and recent achievements, as well as details about how you can help shape these in the future.

Learn about the impact we're all making

You'll have the chance to participate in 2 discussion sessions:

  1. Parkinson's Links in action –  exploring real examples of projects running to support people with speech difficulties, including the Live Loud! project in Wales.  
  2. Strengthening our local work – showcasing how volunteers, people living with Parkinson's and staff are working together to strengthen the way we work together locally, so that more people have opportunities to access activities on their doorsteps.

Share ideas and inspiration

As well as taking part in the discussion sessions, you can also visit our Members' Marketplace, showcasing the exciting work and achievements of Parkinson's UK members and staff.
