You can order a range of different resources and products to help support the running of your group.

Information resources

Read information online or download our resources about Parkinson's on the information and support section of our website.

We produce information on all aspects of life with Parkinson's, in a range of formats and languages. Many of the topics on our information and support pages are also available as leaflets. These can be ordered free of charge if you live in the UK, from the information section of our online shop.

Branded resources

Our online shop also stocks a range of branded products and daily living aids. Local groups are eligible for a discount on some of these products.

For the order form with the discounted prices on, please contact [email protected].

Fundraising resources

There are a number of resources that you can order to help support your group's fundraising. Please contact [email protected] if you are looking for a specific item, for example a collection bucket.

Data handling guidance

Local groups must ensure that they comply with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). 

Our Data Handling Guidance (Word, 22KB) tells you everything you need to know about GDPR, and the key things local groups need to consider.

Consent guidance 

Our consent guidance for local groups (Word, 32KB) outlines what we mean by consent and what it means for local groups.

We've also put together the following documents to assist you with getting your local group members to re-consent.

Local group reports

We need to change the way that we provide you with local group reports in order to comply with GDPR.

We've put together a list of local group reports FAQs (Word, 20KB) to explain why and how we're changing this process.
