Mission Statement

The Parkinson's UK mission is the conquest of Parkinson's disease, and the alleviation of the suffering and distress it causes, through effective research, education, welfare and communication.

This year, Parkinson's UK will spend 4 million funding medical research into the causes, relief and cure of Parkinson's disease, as well as campaigning within Parliament and the media on issues affecting people with Parkinson's and their carers.

Parkinson's UK works with health and social care professionals, advising on models of good practice and offering a wide range of up-to-date
information. It has a Freephone Helpline and offers advice on residential and respite care services. The PDS has established 220 Parkinson's Disease Nurse Specialists within the NHS and employs 76 Community Support Workers. It has 29,000 members and 307 branches and support groups nationwide.
