Parkinson's UK local groups offer friendship, support, and numerous activities for people affected by Parkinson's.

In Reigate the group is a core part of the local Parkinson's community. Joining as helper means you will be too - meeting new people and building new relationships.

You could be putting the kettle on, to give a warm welcome to new group attendees, or making sure the group activities run smoothly - and all activities are open to you too.

This role is flexible, and can be tweaked to suit the time you have to give. Our staff and existing volunteers will be there to support you every step of the way.

As part of recruitment, you will be asked to provide a reference for this role. Speak to your staff contact for more information.

Why we want you Local groups across the UK are run by volunteers and offer friendship and support to people living with Parkinson's and their families and friends. The friendly faces and warm welcome provided by support group helpers means attendees get the most from the group, with the activities on offer running smoothly.
