General election 2024: You made your voice heard

We produced resources and information to help supporters speak to candidates during the election.

The 2024 general election took place on 4 July.

Our aim was to make sure election candidates better understood Parkinson’s and what people with the condition needed if elected.

To help supporters engage with candidates we produced a window poster (PDF 1.2MB) they could display in their window to spark conversations with candidates.

And we also encouraged anyone who spoke to a candidate to let us know, by completing this form - so we can follow this up after the election. 

Now the election results are known we'll be contacting new Ministers and in the coming weeks we'll also share an email supporters can send to their new MP to invite them to meet us at the party conferences and also to join the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Parkinson's.

Nicky's story

"I worked with Kim, our local campaigns officer to get the Parkinson's UK election posters out across Sheffield. 

"Members of the local Sheffield Support Group of Parkinson's UK also wrote to every election candidate across the various constituencies - we focused on Blue Badges as it's a real issue in our area.

"We've been really pleased that some of the candidates responded and suggested they'd meet with us after the election, if they're successful."
