Parkinson's UK Take Control Grants
Parkinson's UK Take Control Grants help you improve your quality of life and well-being.
If you're affected by Parkinson's you can apply for an amount up to £1,500 to fund electrical items, respite care, specialist equipment or activities.
Take Control Grants are available in these 4 areas:
- Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire
- London South (including Richmond and Hounslow)
- Northern Ireland
- Yorkshire and Humber
From January 2019, we plan to make Take Control Grants available to people affected by Parkinson's throughout the UK.
We've launched Take Control Grants to replace our Mali Jenkins Fund which was suspended in 2014.
