Join Us – We’re here to help


In Medway, we are fortunate to have two active Parkinson’s UK support groups. The main group, The Medway Towns Branch,  meets every 4th Saturday of each month at 10.30 a.m. in St. Stephen’s Church Hall, Chatham ME4 6JE and the Working Age Group meets every 3rd Thursday at Prince Arthur Road Indoor Bowling Club, Brompton, Gillingham ME7 1UR. Both groups offer information, friendship and support to all local people affected by Parkinson’s. The groups are both part of Parkinson’s UK, the UK’s support and research charity which is leading  the work to find a cure, campaigning to change attitudes and demanding better services
