Imagine not being able to move, sleep, or smile. Feeling anxious or depressed and struggling to think or remember. Your body not feeling like your own. This is what Parkinson's can feel like.

Every hour, two people in the UK are told they have Parkinson's - a brain condition that turns lives upside down, leaving a future full of uncertainty.

Parkinson's UK is an ambitious and dynamic charity, passionate about improving the lives of everyone affected by Parkinson's. We are working towards bringing forward the day that no-one fears Parkinson's, and our pace and determination is stronger than ever.
