Awareness Raising Campaigns
It is important to raise awareness of everything that impacts people with Parkinson’s and those who care for and work with them. From Parkinson’s Awareness Week and World Parkinson’s Day to Carer’s Week and Volunteers Week, Parkinson’s Care and Support UK brings together awareness raising topics from across the world.
At Parkinson’s Care and Support UK we use Awareness-raising as a process to inform, educate and celebrate issues which is always linked to a purpose or goal.
If you would like to us to highlight an Awareness Raising Campaign that could be relevant to people with Parkinson’s and our organisation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Parkinson’s Awareness Week
Parkinson’s Awareness Week is our annual opportunity to raise awareness Parkinson’s. It took place between 5th– 11th April 2020 and this year’s theme was Diet and Exercise and how they can affect Parkinson’s symptoms. We would like to thank our supporters for helping us to raise awareness by displaying and sharing our posters, Tweeting on Twitter and posting on social media.
World Parkinson’s Day
On Saturday 11th April 2020 we celebrated World Parkinson’s Day where we raised awareness of alternative therapies and how these can help to people living with Parkinson’s.
Mental Health Awareness Week
The 18th-24th May 2020 marked Mental Awareness Week in the UK and so Parkinson’s Care and Support UK are used this week to raise awareness of anxiety and depression in Parkinson’s and how you can treat these conditions naturally.
1st– 7th June 2020 marked Volunteer’s Week and it an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. Parkinson’s Care and Support UK uses this opportunity to publicly thank our volunteers and to appeal for more wonderful people to join our team and make a real difference to the lives of those living with Parkinson’s today.
It was Carer’s Week from 8th– 14th June 2020, is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to the lives of dependent people. This includes people with Parkinson’s. At Parkinson’s Care and Support UK, we care for carers and so this week we love to celebrate the Invisible Army of carers supporting their loved ones with Parkinson’s today.
