Younger Persons Support Group

The Yorkshire and Humberside Younger Persons Support Group (YPSG) is aimed at people with Parkinson's who are of working age. This group is run and managed entirely by volunteers, all who have Parkinson’s. We are part of a regional network that Parkinson's UK operate. Our objectives are:

  • holding quarterly meetings or events
  • have a representative in each major town to be a local contact
  • fundraiser to support our activities.
  • establish an information service
  • distribution of newsletter

The Parkinson's UK charity has a professional team that provides a range of support and information services for people with Parkinson's, health and social care professionals, carers, and individuals or groups who may want to volunteer or support our work.
