General election 2024: Make your voice heard

Information and resources to make sure your election candidates make Parkinson's their priority.

The 2024 general election is on 4 July and the Parkinson's community needs you. 

Take action by asking your candidates questions on your doorstep, inviting your candidates to a local group meeting, or attending a general election meeting in your area.

By making your voice heard, you’re letting whoever is elected to represent you know what people with Parkinson’s need. 

Campaigner Garth talks about engaging with his MP

Garth's story

Garth, a Parkinson’s UK campaigner, discusses meeting with his MP. He shares how easy it was to set up and how important it is to connect with MPs so they can advocate for people with Parkinson’s.

What the election means for people across the UK

This is a UK-wide election. Everyone has an MP.

If you live in England, your MP is responsible for most of the issues that affect you.

It's different if you live in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales. MPs are not responsible for areas like health and social care, education and housing.

Instead, many day-to-day issues are decided by the Northern Ireland Assembly, the Scottish Parliament or the Sennedd in Wales.

This briefing provides more information about MPs and what the general election means for voters in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
