We campaign to make sure people living with Parkinson's are treated fairly, with access to the support they need including high quality health and social care, and help from a specialist Parkinson's nurse. We also improve understanding of Parkinson's by changing attitudes and challenging myths. we run a number of activities and projects from fundraising events to research talks to campaigns.
