What is a local Branch

The Guildford & South Surrey Branch is affiliated to Parkinson’s UK and is organised and run by a Committee of dedicated volunteers. Through its own fundraising, the Branch provides a wide range of activities to support those living with Parkinson’s in the Guildford and South Surrey area and their families and friends.

We provide three important elements which Parkinson’s consultants advise is vital for all people who have Parkinson’s to do:

  • Stay physically active
  • Stay mentally active
  • Stay socially active

Perhaps most importantly, we try to ensure that anyone who has been recently diagnosed with the condition is aware of the help, support, services, friendship and social activities we offer.

Our branch has around 380 members. They are mainly people who have Parkinson’s, but our membership also includes carers, family members, and friends. We keep in touch by post, monthly email, this website, and our Branch magazine published three times a year.

So please, explore our website and consider joining our Branch.
