What we’re fighting for during the coronavirus crisis
We’re supporting and sticking up for people with Parkinson’s.
Health, social care, and benefits must meet your needs. Right now, it’s clear that not everyone’s needs are being met. So, we're listening to your concerns and experiences, and we're talking to the relevant governments and organisations. We demand they take action, to make sure you’re treated fairly.
To find out what benefits and grants you're entitled to, you can:

Benefits and Parkinson's
Janet has Parkinson's and relies on her specially built car to help her get around. But when her mobility allowance was stopped, she thought she might lose her car.
Hear about Janet's experience in our short video.
Personal Independence Payment
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) has replaced Disability Living Allowance for people between the ages of 16 and State Pension age. If you are State Pension age or over and have care or supervision needs, you may be able to claim Attendance Allowance instead.
Employment and Support Allowance
You may be eligible for Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) if your ability to work is limited because of ill health or disability.
