Applying for a Grant
The application process is now open and can be submitted by email or post before the closing date of 31st July 2020. Anyone who suffers from Parkinsons or another form of parkinsonism or unpaid carers can apply, including those who receive a Carers Allowance. There are some restrictions on what the organisation will fund, and Parkinsons UK priorities those who are in the most need of financial support, so to qualify your total household savings need to be less than £16,000.
