Vital support

Every year, we connect thousands of people with Parkinson’s with others living with the condition, empowering them to take control.

Connecting people

Our self-management groups support people with Parkinson's to come to terms with Parkinson's and plan positively for their future.

Learning from others living with Parkinson’s

Our peer support service, local groupsself management groups and online forum are just some of the ways we connect people with others who can share support, tips and inspiration.

Each year 30,000 people connect with others affected by Parkinson’s through our local support groups.

We make sure thousands of people make vital links with others through a range of services available in their local area, over the phone and online.

The right support, in the right place, at the right time.

Support from volunteers

We couldn’t do any of this without our amazing volunteers, who give their time and expertise to run services and offer mutual support and friendship to people with Parkinson's.

Peer support service

Our free peer support service puts you in touch with a trained volunteer who has a similar experience of Parkinson's to you - someone who understands.
