Support the Parky Charter

Please note this petition has been handed in, however we're keeping it open to people can sign it to show their support.

Will you join the Movers and Shakers, Parkinson’s UK, Spotlight YOPD and Cure Parkinson’s to call on the government to take action to improve the lives of people with Parkinson’s and their loved ones?

The Movers and Shakers are a group of public figures who all have Parkinson’s and are not afraid to say what they think. And they have been saying it.

In the pub to each other initially, and then more widely in their podcast about Parkinson’s: Movers and Shakers.

They’ve been listening too, and in their words:

'The podcast has become an unexpected hit as it seems to have touched a nerve. Through the thousands of emails and letters we have received since we started, we have developed (and continue to develop) a view of the situation. This has led us to the unfortunate conclusion that the NHS and other public services are failing people with the condition'.

Will you join them in calling for the government to take action?

They have published a Charter - 'The Parky Charter' - describing five things that people with Parkinson’s need from the government but are not getting.

We - Parkinson’s UK, Cure Parkinson's and Spotlight YOPD - support the principles of the Charter and are partnering with them to bring it to the attention of politicians. And we need your help to do this. 

If you support the principles of the Charter, please fill in the form opposite to pledge your support.

We will only use your data to share updates regarding this campaign and future work related to the Parky Charter.

If you have any specific comments about the contents of the Charter, please send them to [email protected]
