A path through Parkinson's is a free self-management programme designed to help you navigate your life with Parkinson's. It is for people with Parkinson's, partners and carers.
Each self-management group is led by trained volunteer facilitators with first-hand experience of Parkinson's.
The aim is to share experiences and discuss the practical and emotional impact of Parkinson’s.
The programme offers a time-limited, structured and facilitated chance to talk through some of the bigger questions about life with the condition. In this way it differs from the really valuable support provided by our branches and local support groups.

What are the benefits?
People tell us that as a result of attending they feel:
-armed with information and knowledge
-more confident, positive, in control and able to move forward
-less alone as a result of meeting others
Participants also say they gain:
-greater self-awareness and insight
-a personal action plan for doing specific things such as exercise, hobbies and therapeutic activities
-improved speech as a result of talking in the group
