We offer journalists in the print, broadcast and online media access to real people affected by Parkinson's, expert information about the condition, Parkinson's research, our health and social policy campaigns, lifestyle issues and fundraising events.

We also provide facts and figures for journalists about Parkinson's, how many people are affected, treatments and the work of Parkinson's UK.
