Module 2: What does Parkinson's UK do? How are volunteers involved?

Volunteers are bringing us closer to breakthroughs, fighting for better services, and providing support and activities locally. Find out more about our work, and the ambitions behind it. 

Welcome to Module 2

In this video, Parkinson's UK volunteer Anne explains what Module 2 is all about. 

Together we will find a cure, and improve life for everybody affected by Parkinson’s. Our values are how we'll work to do this - where have you seen these displayed by the volunteers and staff you work with?
