Imagine not being able to move, sleep, or smile. Feeling anxious or depressed and struggling to think or remember. Your body not feeling like your own. This is what Parkinson’s can feel like.
Every hour, someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s – a brain condition that turns lives upside down, leaving a future full of uncertainty.
Parkinson’s UK is here to make sure people have whatever they need to take back control – from information to inspiration.
We want everyone to get the best health and social care so we bring professionals together to drive improvements that enable people to live life to the fullest.
Ultimately, we want to end Parkinson’s. That’s why we inspire and support the international research community to develop life-changing treatments, faster. And we won’t stop until we find a cure. Some of the things we do include:
- Influence and fund ground-breaking research internationally to advance understanding of Parkinson’s and improve treatments.
- We provide expert information on every aspect of Parkinson’s.
- We offer support and opportunities to live life to the full for everyone with Parkinson’s, their families and carers.
- We raise awareness, change perceptions and work in partnership to drive better services.
Together we can bring forward the day when no one fears Parkinson’s.
