Grants, loans and other support

There are many other types of grants, loans, schemes or financial support that you can apply for if you or someone you care for has Parkinson's.

These include:

  • grants and loans to help with certain one-off or occasional expenses, such as funeral costs or cold weather

  • help towards some health costs that you might otherwise pay for, such as prescriptions, eye tests and glasses, dental treatment or travel costs to hospital. Call our helpline on 0808 800 0303 to check what you might be eligible for  

  • help getting around, including the Blue Badge parking scheme, and various travel concessions and exemptions

  • help with Council Tax through a Council Tax discount, the Disability Reduction scheme, or through a Council Tax Reduction scheme

  • continuing healthcare - a package of care arranged and funded by the NHS in England and Wales, that may be available for people with a high level of healthcare needs

  • Parkinson's UK Personal Grants if you have Parkinson's or are an unpaid carer.

Feeling in control of your finances is incredibly important for your mental and physical health, especially if you have Parkinson’s.
