We know that support and friendship from group activities is important and we're here to support you. You can get in touch with your local group for up to date information about activities using the contact details on this page.

More about our group
Support and Friendship Always
Every person who has Parkinson's is an individual. However what brings us together is the need for support and information. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been dealing with Parkinson's for a long time, we are here to offer guidance to local people with Parkinson's and their families and carers.
The group is very mixed in age, Parkinson's progression and the type of support that is needed. We welcome all.
Based at the RAFA Club, we hold our meetings on the first Wednesday of the month. We usually have a speaker or some entertainment followed by tea or coffee and some cake for which we ask just £1 per person. We also hold a raffle but most importantly there is lots of friendly chat. Our aim is to generate a family atmosphere enabling people to relax and share their experiences if they choose to.
We organise a selection of events and activities throughout the year. Members are encouraged to put forward fresh ideas and take an active part in events.
The venue has a car park and a ramp for disabled access.
