Parkinson’s – Local support group in Thornbury.

Our self-help group meets at the Chantry on the last Friday in every month, from 10.00 to 12 noon.

We offer a friendly welcome and the chance to chat with people with Parkinson’s and their family carers in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

We have quite a wide spread of group knowledge with varying levels of experience of the disease and the local support available from the NHS and Parkinson’s UK. So, if you fancy a chat with people in a similar position as you, come and have a coffee and meet us.
