Now in its fourth year, the Parkinson’s UK Physical Activity Grants Programme offer grants of between £500 and £3,000 to develop new activities for people affected by Parkinson’s to participate in physical activity and sport or increased participation in these areas.

  • People who are not engaged with Parkinson’s UK.
  • People who are inactive, or active at low levels.
  • People who are still working.

Examples of the types of projects and activities that can be supported include:

  • New physical activity provision for people with Parkinson’s.
  • New physical activity that significantly increase the level of physical activity of people with Parkinson’s who are currently active.
  • Buying equipment that will facilitate or enhance activities.
  • Essential maintenance or replacement of equipment that will lead to greater participation or increased impact.
  • Facility hire.
  • Coaching fees.
  • Specific training.
  • Developing community activities that demonstrate a pathway into sustained activity.
  • Helping people to access Parkinson’s specific online support to become more active.

This is a rolling programme.
