Parkinson's in Parliament

We work proactively to ensure that MPs and Peers understand the issues affecting people with Parkinson's and their carers and how they can make sure policy reflects their needs.

We engage with MP and Peers in the UK Parliament as well as Members of the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales and the Northern Ireland Assembly.

All-Party Parliamentary Group on Parkinson's

We provide the secretariat to the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Parkinson's. This is a group of cross-party MPs and Peers with an interest in Parkinson's.

If you are a parliamentarian and wish to join the APPG, please email [email protected]

2016 party conferences

We are attending the 2016 party conferences with people affected by Parkinson's to highlight the issues facing them.

In September and October 2016 - the first party conferences since the EU referendum and leadership contests in both the Conservative and Labour Parties - we'll be meeting with MPs and key party figures to promote our priorities for healthcare, research and the welfare system.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about what we are doing at the party conferences contact [email protected].

Tell your MP about your experience with Parkinson's

If you want to lobby your MP on Parkinson's-related issues, you can write to them at the House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA.
