Parkinson’s UK launches its Physical Activity Grants programme for 2024

31st May 2024

Parkinson’s UK is launching its popular Physical Activity Grants programme to help more people living with Parkinson’s get active in 2024.

Now into its fourth year, the charity’s Physical Activity Grants programme will reopen for submissions on Monday 3 June for physical activity providers, leisure groups, sports clubs, national governing bodies, Parkinson’s groups and many more across the UK.

Since the grants scheme started in 2021, Parkinson’s UK has awarded more than £426,000 to 192 physical activity projects across the UK.

Physical activity initiatives ranging from wheelchair rugby to table tennis and from walking football to hydrotherapy, among many more, have all supported people living with Parkinson’s to get active and live well with the condition.

Being active with Parkinson’s can have many benefits including better balance, strength and coordination, as well as improving mental health and sleep. Physical activity can also help people living with the condition to socialise and reduce feelings of isolation.
