PM Central

Parkinson’s Movement (PM) was founded in 2011 with the aim of rallying the voice of people with Parkinson’s (PwP) to ensure that the people living with the condition had an influence not just on their own individual lives, but on the entire Parkinson’s agenda.

We seek to enable people living with Parkinson’s to share their opinions and we aim to communicate this shared voice to policymakers, opinion formers and stakeholders around Europe.

We believe there is a need to challenge current thinking about the treatment of Parkinson’s, and to do this we need to share the opinions of people living with the condition.

We want to raise the expectations of people with Parkinson’s – of care, of cure and all points in between.

We know that the research is out there to move towards a cure for Parkinson’s but we need the voices of others living with the condition to help break down the barriers to a cure.

We will listen to you, not just hear you. We will talk to you not down to you. We will speak for you,  not instead of you. We will act today not tomorrow.
