In no particular order, our first beneficiary of this years CP2CP cycle is Parkinson's association of Ireland.
We our delighted to have this charity on board as they have had a direct relationship with two of our previous participants.
For those who might not know, Parkinson's is a progressive neurological disorder, which so far cannot be cured.
One aspect of the services the association provides is a support network of branches around the country, these are a fantastic way for people with Parkinson's and their families to meet with each other and discuss the various problems associated with Parkinson's disease. Branches play an important role in collating information for onward transmission to the National Office which in turn informs our thinking and guides our negotiations with the HSE and Government for services to people with Parkinson's.
