Parkinson's Active

Parkinson's Active is our Parkinson’s physical activity network in Scotland, providing a range of support for people with Parkinson's and healthcare professionals. 

Being active is important for everyone. And if you have Parkinson's it can help manage your symptoms, improve your mood and make everyday movements a little easier. The more physically active you are the easier it is to live well with Parkinson's. 

Parkinson's Active, our Parkinson’s physical activity network in Scotland, provides a range of support, from local physical activity opportunities for people with Parkinson’s to resources for professionals. We've got everything you need.

Parkinson's and physical activity

One of the biggest challenges to physical activity is knowing where to start, what type of activity is best and where you can access it.

We've put together some resources and guidance so that you can find the right exercise and support for you, whatever your ability.

Support for activity providers and health professionals

In Scotland, we want activity providers and health professionals to feel confident in supporting people with Parkinson's. We have a number of resources to help:
