Young Onset Parkinson's (YOPD)

If you are a person with Parkinson's (PwP) younger than around 55, you are considered to be Young Onset. Though we have tried to engage with this younger age group, our success has been limited. This is an area we wish to develop and we would welcome ideas from younger people affected by Parkinson's.


Young Onset reboot meeting

We're holding an informal meeting in Summertown, Oxford on 24th August 2017 for local young-onset PwPs to get to know one another, share ideas, and try to fire up an active group in the region. Contact the Chair for more details of time and place:

YOPD resources

Two websites, both founded by younger PwPs in our region, may be of interest:
  • is a locally-run charity and website with fantastic resources for supporting families that include a working-age PwP.
  • Spotlight YOPD is a dynamic, campaigning charity run by and for younger PwPs.
