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.

YOPD resources

Two websites, both founded by younger PwPs in our region, may be of interest:
  • Parkinsons.me 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.
