OUR DIVISIONS

 

Our Divisions

Parkinson’s New Zealand has 20 divisions, and the Committee of each division is made up of volunteers. Each division provides information, education, and opportunities for mutual support and social activities. Divisions have Community Educators who provide practical, individual assistance and advice on local services.

The divisions also raise awareness about Parkinson’s and funds to keep our services available.

Click an area on the map below, or select a region from the list on the right for information about a division.

Please note some divisions are also Multiple Sclerosis societies.
