The appointment of this role comes at an exciting time for the charity.

We are a dynamic and innovative charity, delivering a diverse range of activity. This includes:

  • Driving, supporting and developing ground breaking new partnerships in research and services to make this happen.  Our commitment to research has resulted in Parkinson’s UK becoming the largest charitable funder of Parkinson’s research in Europe.
  • Our UK Parkinson’s Excellence Network, which brings together health and social care professionals, locally and across the UK, to build excellence in Parkinson’s services.
  • Our local information and support service, which works tirelessly to support and advise people affected by Parkinson’s across the UK.
  • Our digital transformation strategy, aimed at enabling people affected by Parkinson’s to connect with others and help them manage their condition in news ways, and to help us to operate even more effectively as an organisation.
