This week is Parkinson’s awareness week, a campaign launched by Parkinson’s UK to increase the awareness of Parkinson’s disease in the United Kingdom and helping to get people diagnosed with Parkinson’s and their families the right support and advice that can make a big difference to their lives.

Parkinson’s UK have given us three really easy ways for us all to get involved:

  • 1. Share their film

Parkinson’s UK have put together a great video, to help raise awareness of what they can do to help people who are living life with Parkinson’s disease. Please watch and share! A cup of tea could change your friend’s life

  • 2. Share your Story

Sharing your experiences of Parkinson’s can really help raise awareness of the different things people may need the challenges of living with Parkinson’s. Use social media to post a picture or story that has made a big difference to life with Parkinson’s using hashtag #Parkinsonsin1

  • 3. Use your head

On Friday 22 April, hundreds of people at schools and workplaces are taking part in Use Your Head. Just wear something fun, smart or downright silly on your head for the day and raise money and awareness for Parkinson’s UK. If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, share your selfies with Parkinson’s UK!
