PARKINSON’S UK has been awarded a £348,600 grant from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, to help deliver vital services and support to people affected by Parkinson’s who are struggling with the impact of COVID-19.
The grant will ensure the charity can design and deliver new online tools and offline resources to help with the needs of the community that have emerged during the pandemic. Led by the ‘Parkinson’s Connect’ team that is working to transform the charity’s support offer, it includes helping people to manage their Parkinson’s without access to normal clinical support and keeping active at home to manage their symptoms.
The funding boost will also help to develop and deliver activities to support over 500 Lead Volunteers across England.
