Who we are

Parkinson's UK supporters and staff at Just Walk 2012

Because we're here, no one has to face Parkinson's alone.

Imagine not being able to move, sleep, or smile. Feeling anxious or depressed and struggling to think or remember. Your body not feeling like your own.

This is what Parkinson's can feel like.

Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s - a brain condition that turns lives upside down, leaving a future full of uncertainty.

Parkinson's UK is here to make sure people have whatever they need to take back control – from information to inspiration.

Help us to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

We want everyone to get the best health and social care. So we bring professionals together to drive improvements that enable people to live life to the full.

Ultimately, we want to end Parkinson's. That's why we inspire and support the international research community to develop life-changing treatments, faster. And we won’t stop until we find a cure.

Together we can bring forward the day when no one fears Parkinson's.
