Cardiff & Vale
Registered Charity No. 258197.
Our aim is to find a cure and improve life for everybody affected by Parkinson’s Disease which is a complex, progressive, neurodegenerative condition that has a significant impact on all aspects of life for the person affected and their family. We do this through:
Providing expert information on Parkinson’s via our helpline, website, printed materials and local advisers.
Funding ground breaking research into the condition – the causes, symptoms, effective treatments and ultimately a cure.
Offering local friendship and support to those living with the condition, their families and carers via a network of volunteer-led groups. At present we have 27 local groups across Wales.
Campaigning for fair treatment and uniform access to high quality services regardless of where people live and improving decision makers and the general public’s understanding of the condition which affects over 8,500 people in Wales (a number which is only set to grow as we develop an increasingly elderly population).
