Having Parkinson's can feel overwhelming if you don't have the right information and support. Parkinson’s UK are there to help everyone feel in control of life with Parkinson's.
We provide expert information on every aspect of Parkinson's so that people affected by the condition can stay in control of their lives, through:
We lead, influence and fund research to ensure new and better treatments in years, rather than decades. We're the largest European charitable founder of Parkinson's research. So far, we've invested over £80 million in groundbreaking research.
We offer friendship, support and opportunities to everyone with Parkinson's, their families and carers. Our local networks allow people to meet others affected by the condition and get involved in local social and therapeutic activities.
We raise awareness, change perceptions and work in partnership to drive better services. We campaign to make sure people living with Parkinson's are treated fairly and have access to the support they need.
Without the generosity of people like you, our work would not be possible. Supporters and volunteers are as vital to us as researchers and nurses. Our work is totally dependent on donations. It's only with your help that we can continue our vital research projects, and provide support and information.
Charlie Appleyard, founder and director of Annapurna said: "We are delighted to have Parkinson’s UK as part of the Annapurna Giving initiative. It's a cause very close to our heart. The charity does fantastic work.”
