The Parkinson's Centre for Integrated Therapy

The future of Parkinson’s care

The world’s first integrated therapy centre offering comprehensive support to those that need it most

Thousands of people live with Parkinson’s in the UK but for many, the right treatment is out of reach. 

We’re determined to change that - we need your help to establish the world’s first integrated therapy centre offering comprehensive support to those that need it most, while advocating for new treatments that could give hope to so many worldwide. 

We have launched a fundraising campaign to secure the £870,000 needed to make our vision a reality and ask that you consider supporting our appeal.

Supporting people with Parkinson's

There is currently no cure for Parkinson's, but different therapies and support can help people manage the condition. These treatments are in high demand and some are not routinely available. Therefore, providing freely accessible therapies so that multiple symptoms can be managed all under one roof is a top priority.

This is the aim of the Parkinson's Centre for Integrated Therapy. 

Kent Giving Week

The University of Kent is hosting its first ever giving week from Monday 9 – Friday 13 May. Kent Giving Week is five days of fundraising activities raising vital funds for university projects with a focus on the Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy. Our target is to raise £25,000 to fund the group exercise classes for the first two years. There is an exciting programme of activities to get involved in, including a 5k route around campus whilst wearing silent disco headphones, 'TED' talks, a lunchtime concert with the East Kent Rock Choir and a Big Finale Livestream!
