In April 2022, Parkinson’s ACT partnered with The Hospital Research Foundation Group.
Together we are committed to increasing and improving services for Parkinson’s clients and their families in and around the Australian Capital Territory as well as supporting vital research into the disease.
Our shared objective is to maximise choice, independence and wellbeing for people affected by Parkinson’s or other movement disorders through support, education and advocacy.
Walk to Fight Parkinson’s
Walk to Fight Parkinson’s is an opportunity for our community to raise vital funds and show support for people living with Parkinson’s and their families in the ACT.

A little about who we are
We are a volunteer-run, non-profit organisation providing information, support and education for people living with Parkinson’s.
The purpose of Parkinson’s ACT is to promote the well-being and interests of people with Parkinson’s and their families, friends and carers in the ACT and nearby region.
What’s on this month
Get up to date
Expansion and enhancement of client support services and programs will be the focus of a new partnership between Parkinson’s ACT (PACT) and The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group.
The most important contribution that you can make is to understand the difficulties that people with Parkinson’s experience.
Knowing more about this illness will lift the awareness and also help reduce the stigma attached to living with this condition.
