Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, all face to face activities run by Parkinson's UK are cancelled until further notice. Some activities have now moved online. You can get in touch with your local group for up to date information using the information on this page.  

For people with Parkinson’s there’s no increased risk of catching Coronavirus, however the virus can affect people with underlying health conditions differently. So to minimise risk we advise people with Parkinson’s not to meet up in person for activities and meetings.

We know that support and friendship from group activities is important and the charity is here to support you. You can contact our helpline on 0808 800 0303. It’s the first port of call for advice or to be put in touch with your local adviser. Or, why not discover the support of our online community via the forum
