About Parkinson's UK

Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s. We’re bringing forward the day no-one fears Parkinson’s. We bring people living with Parkinson’s together via our network of local groups, our website and free confidential helpline. Specialist nurses, our supporters and staff provide information and training on every aspect of Parkinson’s. As the UK’s Parkinson’s support and research charity we’re leading the work to find a cure, and we’re closer than ever. We also campaign to change attitudes and demand better services. Our work is totally dependent on donations.
