Parkinson’s UK

About

Parkinson’s UK brings people with Parkinson’s, their carers and families together via a network of local groups, website and free confidential helpline – Specialist Nurses, supporters and staff provide information and training on every aspect of Parkinson’s. As the UK’s Parkinson’s support and research charity, they are leading the work to find a cure and also campaigning to change attitudes and demand better services.
