Our vision, mission and values

Our vision - our ultimate ambition - is to find a cure, and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

The hopes and views of people affected by Parkinson's have helped us form our clear vision for the future. We believe a cure will be found by overcoming the symptoms of Parkinson's one by one.

Our plans for 2015-2019 set out our mission and guide our work to make this vision a reality.
