Parkinson’s Australia represents, at the national level, the interests of its federation of state and territory members on all matters relating to Parkinson’s and carer issues.
The role of Parkinson’s Australia is to advocate on the basis of evidence-based policy, promote awareness of Parkinson’s and support education about Parkinson's in the community and with clinicians.
They are committed to a strong consumer focus and work with all Parkinson’s state organisations (who provide support services, education and information) to advocate on behalf of the Parkinson’s community at a federal level.
They are represented within the National Neurological Alliance group which advocates for better services for people affected by progressive degenerative neurological diseases in Australia.
They are dedicated to achieving a society where people living with Parkinson’s, their carers and family members are supported, respected, empowered, and engaged in community life.
