Steps Forward course

Steps Forward: guidance for newly diagnosed

We offer a short course delivered over two 90-minute online sessions using video conferencing (Zoom). This focused, carefully tailored programme is available free to anyone living in Oxfordshire who has recently received a Parkinson’s diagnosis, and their partner or supporter.

Respite care grants

Financial support for respite care

Thanks to our fundraising and a generous legacy, we can offer cash grants to help pay for respite care, allowing unpaid carers to have some “me time”. The available grants will typically provide around 20 to 30 hours of care per year for each grant recipient. The application process is straightforward and can be done online, though we urge potential applicants to contact us in advance to confirm their eligibility.

Oxford Branch of Parkinson's UK

Our Branch and its activities

Oxford Branch offers friendly support, social opportunities, meetings and outings to people affected by Parkinson’ in the Oxford area and beyond. Although many of our activities are online at present, we are beginning to hold some in-person events.

Weekly Carers’ Chat meetings

We offer an informal drop-in session using Zoom so that carers can share ideas and simply have a chat with others in a similar situation. Contact our Secretary to get the Zoom link.
