Team Parkinson's

Join the movement to transform lives and find a cure.

People with Parkinson's deserve better.

  • 1 million people across the UK are affected by Parkinson's. 

  • 87% of people with Parkinson's have faced harassment and discrimination.
  • There's still no cure.

But you can make a real difference.

There's a role for you too!

Why join?

The team has already achieved so much, including:

  • convincing the NHS to fund crucial Parkinson's medication 
  • creating specialist Parkinson's nurses 
  • funding research breakthroughs

But there's still more to do. And the more people who join in, the stronger we'll be.

We don't want cost to stop anyone from being able to join, so just chip in whatever you can – even if that's nothing right now.
