We know from research that people don't think Parkinson's is a serious condition. And people with Parkinson's have told us they don't feel understood. In 2019 and beyond, we're working hard to change this.
We've launched 'Parkinson's Is' - a campaign to increase understanding of Parkinson's as a serious condition.
How to get involved
Together, we can make the world sit up and listen.
Share our campaign video far and wide on your social media using #ParkinsonsIs and let's show the real impact of Parkinson's. The video will be available on the day on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts.
You can find all our social media resources, to help you spread the word, on our Parkinson's Is social media page.
You can find all our resources for you to download and print on our Parkinson's Is: downloadable resources page.
Speak to your local press
Approach your local media with a story about your World Parkinson's Day event to spread the word about Parkinson's UK and the Parkinson's Is campaign.
Grab attention in your community
If you'd like to see the 'Parkinson's Is' campaign in your community, why not ask your local paper to place an advert? Or you could place the campaign artwork at a bus stop. Costs range from £175-£350 for 2 weeks depending on where you are in the UK.
