Welcome to the Bristol and District Branch of Parkinson's UK.
Hello and welcome to the Bristol and District Branch of Parkinson's UK.
We are a group who are living with Parkinson's either as those with the condition or friends and family or carers. We support each other with a variety of social and physical activities, meetings, and keep members updated on the latest medical developments and research into treatments for the condition.
We serve people in the greater Bristol area including South Gloucestershire. We are fostering links with neighbouring branches that include NW Somerset, Weston Super Mare and Bath and North East Somerset.
We hold open Branch meetings on the first Saturday of each month when we have a guest speaker (see social activities) and the affairs are managed by an elected committee of dedicated volunteers (supported by Parkinson's UK staff) who meet on the first monday of each month. (see about us) Our AGM is on the first Saturday in March at St Monicas Trust and we have an independent president invited from our community.
We aim to offer our local community a varied menu of choices to support them, their carers and families as well as the wider community of people living with Parkinson's by fundraising and collecting donations, passing these onto specified areas within Parkinson's UK.
