Advocacy

Parkinson’s Tasmania advocates on behalf of all people affected by Parkinson’s disease regardless of age or locality.

This occurs at the grass roots level of people in their own homes, hospitals or Residential Aged Care. It involves community education at all levels by talking to people. Eg Service Providers, Clubs, etc.

We produce a quarterly Journal/Newsletter that is sent to members, Service Clubs, G.Ps. Health professionals and to all other States. Whilst we encourage people to become members it is not a requirement for our help and information.

We advocate for better services and supports by lobbying politicians both State and Federal.

We belong to the National Alliance of Neurological conditions to create a bigger voice.

Parkinson’s Tasmania is represented on the Parkinson’s Australia Board.
