The ethos of the Sheffield Support Group is to support activities to enable people with Parkinson’s to build physical and mental wellness through participation in social events, learning and creative activities with like-minded people.

The group is run for the charity by volunteers who are living with Parkinson’s themselves, or who have experience of Parkinson’s. It is supported by professional staff to:

  • Offer information, friendship, and support to those with Parkinson’s, their carers, families and friends
  • Organise or assist with events and social activities for members
  • Raise funds for research to support people affected by Parkinson’s 

We believe that doing something positive for yourself is good for the soul. We arrange classes and activities that include:

  • Posture and general fitness, Boxing, Pilates, Tango, Voice (singing), Saturday morning walks and monthly meetings, with a speaker, and an opportunity to meet others over a cup of tea.
  • A group for those who live with a Person with Parkinson’s

We also signpost to privately run classes:

  • PD Warrior
  • Personalised strength and fitness
  • Circuits
  • Golf

We follow the values of Parkinson’s UK by putting People first and at the centre of decisions, Uniting all those who are affected by Parkinson’s in Sheffield, Pioneering with a can-do attitude and we are Driven to find a cure and offer support until one is found.

Volunteers needed! We need to recruit volunteers to help us run the group. Do you have an hour or two per month to spare? If so we would be delighted to hear from you. For more information please get in touch with Rose Crawley Tel. 0344 25 3634 email [email protected]

Local group meetings are regular get togethers where you'll be able to meet other people affected by Parkinson's. Here you'll find mutual support where you can chat, socialise and relax, often with a cup of tea or slice of cake in hand. Lots of local groups also offer a range of other activities including chances to get active, scroll down this page to see what other opportunities this group offers.
