Our purpose

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. We are a volunteer-run, non-profit organisation providing information, support and education for people living with Parkinson's.

Parkinson's ACT fosters a wide variety of activities. We run five different support groups, sponsor two dance groups, a singing group and a painting group, publish a monthly bulletin, provide information seminars and contribute to Parkinson's research. We are keen to establish other groups and activities as opportunities arise.

Parkinson's ACT receives no direct government funding. Our activities are made possible through fundraising, memberships, donations, volunteering and community support.

Our logo is the tulip, an internationally recognised symbol for people living with Parkinson's.
