Your Parkinson's local adviser will have a wide range of knowledge and expertise about Parkinson's, and know about services available in your area.

Parkinson's local advisers are there to turn to, so no-one has to face Parkinson's alone, providing free, confidential information and signposting – whether you have the condition or you're a carer, friend or family member of someone with Parkinson’s.

Parkinson's local advisers can help if you:

  • are looking for tips on how to deal with the day-to-day impact of Parkinson's
  • need emotional support
  • want to find out more about the services available in your area
  • have just been diagnosed and are looking for advice and information about your condition
  • want to learn about your rights and entitlements
  • need help navigating the benefits process
  • need information on where to find grants and financial help
  • are looking for support on employment issues
  • need support with anything else relating to your life with Parkinson's
