Movement Disorders Research useful contacts
Parkinson’s UK local advisor
Parkinson’s local advisers can provide free support to anyone living with Parkinson’s including family, friends and carers. They can also visit people in their own homes to provide information, signposting, advocacy help with benefit applications, social needs etc. If an adviser cannot help directly they can usually find someone who can.
The local advisor for Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset, works at the Brain Centre on clinic days to support our clinical team. They provide an information and support service to people with Parkinson’s. Appointments can be made by contacting Parkinson’s UK directly.
