Launching today – Parkinson’s UK public awareness campaign
As a valued supporter of Parkinson’s UK we wanted to share some exciting news with you. Today we are launching a public awareness campaign about the condition and the impact it can have on people’s lives.
Adverts will appear in the press, on billboards around the UK and online throughout December. You can read the stories behind our campaign on our website parkinsons.org.uk
Why are we running this campaign?
Every hour someone in the UK is told they have Parkinson’s, yet the general public know very little about the condition, and how it affects your everyday life.
This is why awareness raising is crucial, so we can change attitudes and challenge the prejudice faced by people living with the condition. It’s also vital to help us engage more supporters to raise money, find a cure, campaign for better services and make sure that no one has to face Parkinson’s alone.

There’s lots of media and online activity happening to accompany the awareness campaign throughout December, and you can keep up to date with it all on our website and on social media.
