Together, our voice is louder

During Parkinson's Awareness Week, local groups around the country invited their local MP to meet people with Parkinson's, their families and carers.

We believe that everyone affected by Parkinson's should have access to quality care and the financial support they need. MPs are currently considering fundamental changes to the NHS in England and the welfare system across the UK.

And we're campaigning to make sure that when the changes come, people with Parkinson's get the services they need and the benefits they rely on. Please help us keep Parkinson's on the political agenda:

  • Invite your local MP to meet people affected by Parkinson's. This gives them to opportunity to hear first-hand what it's like to live with the condition and the help they need to maximise their quality of life and independence.

  • Join our National Campaigns Network. Over 3,000 people have signed up in the last year. Taking part helps us improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

Together, our voice is louder.
