Resources for local groups
If you're volunteering for one of our branches or local groups here are some of the documents and resources you'll need.
Marketing recipe book
The marketing recipe book gives you everything you need, from messaging to materials, to talk to different types of people about Parkinson's.
You can order the materials in this book by downloading the order form below, calling 0300 123 3689 or emailing [email protected].
Local group guidelines and rules
The Local Group Directory is a guide to help local groups provide the best possible support to people living with Parkinson's.
The Local Group Rules help local groups operate in a clear and consistent way.
You can download them below. There is one printed copy per local group available. Contact the Local Networks team for a copy on [email protected] or 020 7963 3929.
You can order a range of different resources and products to help support the running of your group.
We produce information covering a wide range of topics related to Parkinson's.
You can find it all within the information and support section of our website and download it to read in your own time. Or you can signpost the people who come to your group to this page.
We do know though that it is often useful to have resources available at your meetings. So you can order printed copies, which are completely free of charge if you live in the UK from the information section of our online shop.
As well as information resources, our online shop 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].
There are a number of resources that you can order to help support your group's fundraising.
There are further resources that you can order that may be useful for your group. These are listed below.
To order any of these, please send the product code (the number beginning with PK) and quantity you would like to [email protected].
Make sure to include the delivery address you wish the items to be sent to. The items below are free, followed by items that have a charge.
Mosaic, the company that we work with, will send an invoice with your order so that you can pay with a local group cheque. Make sure that you specify which group you are from when you order.

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

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.
