Parkinson's New Zealand
Founded in 1983, The Parkinson's New Zealand Charitable Trust (Parkinson’s New Zealand) is a community based, non-profit organisation, registered with the Charities Commission and reliant on funding from grants, bequests and donations.
Parkinson’s New Zealand provides support, education and information for New Zealanders living with Parkinson’s, their whānau, carers and health professionals. We are here to ensure that people with Parkinson’s (and their family/whānau and carers) have access to the right information at the right time.
Parkinson’s New Zealand is delighted to have Acorn’s continued support for its work in the Western Bay of Plenty region. This grant means people with Parkinson’s, their carers and families can continue to receive much valued and needed, one-on-one support from Community Educators in the region. “Because of this grant we can be here for people who have Parkinson’s and offer free care, information and guidance on how to live life fully with this life changing condition.”
In 2019, Parkinson's New Zealand received funding from the J&G Clarke and J Friis Funds.
