Today, Parkingson's UK Cymru launch their new awareness raising campaign: Parkinsons Is. Please take a moment to watch their campaign video and understand a little more about what Parkinson’s Is  https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/parkinsons-is

Parkinson’s affects nearly 7,700 people in Wales. That’s about one adult in every 340. (This is the higher than the rate for the UK as a whole as well as for any of the UK countries) 

Around 977 people will be diagnosed with Parkinson’s in Wales this year – about 19 people every week. The overwhelming majority of people with Parkinson’s in Wales (87%) are aged over 65, and around 1 in 3 are aged over 80. By 2025 the number of people with Parkinson’s in the UK will rise by nearly a fifth.

You can also support the campaign by sharing the video on social media and helping us spread the word.
