Parkinson's UK Grants

Parkinson's UK Grants can help you live well with Parkinson's. If you're affected by Parkinson's you can apply for up to £1,500.

Applications for Parkinson's UK Grants are open and will close finally for 2020 on 31 October. Because we are still dealing with a backlog of applications and awards, it will take at least 12 weeks from the date we receive your application to receive a decision.

The new application form and updated guidance for applicants is available to download below. We can only accept applications sent to us on the new form.
