April marks World Parkinson’s Awareness Month, when the world comes together to shine a light on Parkinson’s and support people living with this condition.

Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease that affects millions of people worldwide, including 70,000 right here in New South Wales. It is now recognised as the fastest growing neurological condition.

At Parkinson’s NSW, we are committed to supporting individuals and families affected by Parkinson’s. But we can’t do it alone – we need your help to raise awareness and make a difference in the lives of those living with Parkinson’s.

We are stronger together, so during this month have as many conversations as you can about Parkinson’s … what it is and what it does to individuals … caregivers…and families.

Ways you can get involved!

Spread the word

Share information about Parkinson’s on your social media platforms, in your community, and among your friends, family and colleagues. Educating others about the symptoms, challenges, and available support for Parkinson’s can help reduce stigma and increase understanding.

Learn and Educate

Take the time to learn about Parkinson’s and the challenges faced by those living with this condition. The Introduction to Parkinson’s is a free, short online course about Parkinson’s disease, its symptoms and practical ways to improve quality of life.

Step Up for Parkinson's

Join the Parkinson’s community in May and challenge yourself to get fitter and healthier and raise funds for people living with Parkinson’s.

Donate and Support

We can’t do this without the generosity of your support
