We're pleased to share this article from Parkinson's UK:
Do you know or support someone living with Parkinson’s?
Are you aware of support available locally?
Parkinson’s UK is a national charity which provides information, support and advice to anyone living / affected by with Parkinson’s. Nationally we have a free, confidential Helpline Service which provides up to date advice on all aspects of Parkinson’s including signs and symptoms, diagnosis, medication, access to support services, benefits and employment advice, specialist nurse advice and support from a local Parkinson’s Adviser in your area.
The Charity supports and funds research into many aspects of Parkinson’s and campaigns on issues to improve the quality of life of people living with Parkinson’s. We have a range of local group activities run by our network of local volunteers and supporters – including regular meetings, drop-in cafes, exercise sessions and social events (please note that many of these are currently reduced / suspended due to the Covid-19 restrictions).
