The ‘go to’ charity for those with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease.  

These are our three main aims:
• To have YOPD recognised in the UK and beyond as a separate condition with specific symptoms and life challenges – with separate NICE guidelines for YOPD.
• To consider those with YOPD as a long-term investment – with treatment options available when oral medication no longer works.
• To give the newly diagnosed, and those around them, the strength and support to stand up, be counted and help themselves – by working with their neurologist, PD nurse and GP.
