The University of Kent and Parkinson’s Care & Support UK are partnering to open the UK’s first Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy. Based in Canterbury, the Centre will provide individualised and integrated non-drug therapies all under one roof to help improve the mental and physical wellbeing of those living with Parkinson’s disease. Therapies will include groundbreaking neurostimulation therapy, developed at Kent, alongside wrap-around therapies such as neurophysiotherapy, mental health support, group singing, massage therapy and group exercise. Our overall target is £870,000 to fund the first two years of the Centre.
