People with Parkinson's deserve better.
1 million people across the UK are affected by Parkinson's.
- 87% of people with Parkinson's have faced harassment and discrimination.
- There's still no cure.
But you can make a real difference.
Team Parkinson's is for Everyone
Watch the video to meet some members of Team Parkinson's and find out how everyone is getting involved to end Parkinson's. Forever.
There's a role for you too!
The team has already achieved so much, including:
- convincing the NHS to fund crucial Parkinson's medication
- creating specialist Parkinson's nurses
- funding research breakthroughs
But there's still more to do. And the more people who join in, the stronger we'll be.
We don't want cost to stop anyone from being able to join, so just chip in whatever you can – even if that's nothing right now.
Why we're part of Team Parkinson's
"My father was diagnosed 5 years ago. Since then we’ve become part of this kind of huge team."
"It's really important to tell people that Parkinson's is more than they think it is."
"Whether you do something big or small, it makes you feel good. Anyone can get involved."
