Edinburgh Young Parkinson’s Support Group

Aim

Our aim is to provide support to people of “working age” who have PD, in a very informal, relaxed meeting in a private function room kindly given to us by The Steading, 118-120 Biggar Road Edinburgh, EH10 7DU on the first Thursday of every month at 6.30 / 7.00 pm (any changes will be notified by email).

We normally have a drink from the bar (some of us also have a bite to eat) and a chat with fellow “Young Parkies” relating to similar ups and downs we may have in common. We also have guest speakers and try to have social days/nights when we can. Everyone is welcome including partners/carers.

Contact Scott Wilson, 01899 220 827, scott@edinburghparkinsons.org.
