Get involved in Parkinson's Is

Get involved in our attention-grabbing marketing campaign to show the reality of life with Parkinson's. Together we can make more people sit up and listen.

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

Social Media

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 FacebookTwitter 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.

Parkinson's is

We've launched 'Parkinson's Is' – our new campaign. Shaped by people affected by Parkinson's, we aim to show the world that Parkinson's is serious.

'Parkinson's Is' will show the real impact of Parkinson's, including people living with Parkinson's at different stages of the condition, and their real life stories.

Together, we can all spread the message that Parkinson's is a serious condition. If you have questions, or need further support to get involved with the campaign, please let us know.
