All our face-to-face activities have been suspended until further notice, so we have moved to the digital world.
Those who have previously attended a PD-Active course can join the new term (ten weeks) now running on Zoom. See PD-Active
The Singing Group has also moved to Zoom. See Virtual Sing For Fun
This is the latest advice from Parkinson’s UK.
We have been asked by the NHS Trusts responsible for us to publish their NHS Guide to understanding and coping with the situation. For your local contacts see our Advice page.
In normal times and otherwise, we are the Mid Cornwall Branch and the West Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Branch of Parkinson’s UK.
- Get the best out of life. We support people in Cornwall with Parkinson’s, their carers and their families
- No-one should face Parkinson’s alone. We provide information about local health services and advice on how best to live with Parkinson’s
Our work is funded by legacies and donations from local people and organisations. Sponsored challenges feature in a wide range of money-raising activities organised by members and friends. We use the money to assist our local groups, on exercise and therapy activities designed for our needs, and for research. Each Branch is led by a committee of volunteers elected at our AGMs in March.
Thank you for visiting our website. We aim for clear presentation and ease of use bearing in mind some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s. For these reasons the website is best suited to a PC or tablet. Links (underlined text) will always open in a new browser tab. We try to keep the information up to date, correct and useful. If you see something that needs correcting or you have a contribution, please use the Contact Form.
