ABOUT US

Parkinson's Australia is the national peak body and charity representing more than 100,000 Australians living with Parkinson’s. 

We advocate for the Parkinson’s community on issues of national significance. We work to reduce the impact of Parkinson’s by promoting best practice care to ensure that people can maximise their opportunities to live well and maintain their independence.

We are committed to a strong consumer focus and work with all organisations interested in supporting Parkinson's and advocate on behalf of the Parkinson’s community at a federal level.

We are a member of Neurological Alliance Australia (NAA) advocating for better services to people affected by progressive degenerative neurological diseases in Australia.

The Parliamentary Friends of Parkinson’s was reconvened for the 46th Parliament in May 2019.  Senator Catryna Bilyk and Senator Wendy Askew are the conveners of the group whose primary objective is to support the work of Parkinson’s Australia in improving funding for services to and to broaden research and to raise awareness for people living with Parkinson’s.

We are committed to achieving a Parkinson’s-friendly society where people living with Parkinson’s, their carers and family members are supported, respected, empowered, and engaged in community life.
