Parkinson's UK volunteers are part of everything we do. You've supported breakthroughs in research, set up thousands of activities in local communities, and campaigned to save Parkinson's nurses - embodying the Parkinson's UK values every step of the way.
More than 200 incredible volunteers were nominated for an award, with around 70 given out. The names of every winner is below. For many of the winners, and like so many Parkinson's UK volunteers, they're volunteering in multiple roles across the charity, so the primary role the nomination mentions is what we have shared.
For a closer look at some of our 2019 winners, we published this story last year.
