Local groups

There are around 365 Parkinson's UK local groups throughout the UK.

These are run by volunteers who usually have experience of Parkinson's and are supported by Parkinson's UK staff.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, in-person events and activities are suspended. Lots of community activities have moved online, so you can get support and meet others with Parkinson's. Search to see what may be available to you. Join the online community here on Facebook. See more about Parkinson’s and coronavirus on our dedicated page.

The groups welcome family members and carers, and some involve health or social care professionals.

Meetings can be informal - a chance to talk and discuss worries and experiences - or may include a presentation by an invited speaker, such as a healthcare professional or complementary therapist.

Many groups hold social events and activities too.

Catch up on World Parkinson's Day

This year we reached out and showed everyone in the Parkinson’s community that no matter what your circumstances are, you are not alone. We are together, apart.

Watch the World Parkinson’s Day live event, or discover ways to connect with other people in the community.
