This is our 10th year that we have opened our doors at Bishan to support persons with Parkinson through our programmes and services! Just last year in 2022, we have expanded the space to have more classes and programmes to support more persons with Parkinson.

Parkinson is a common neurological disorder that is thought to affect more than four million people world-wide. In Singapore, 3 out of every 1,000 people aged 50 years and above have Parkinson. It is the 2nd most common neurodegenerative disorder. As the population in Singapore ages, more people will be diagnosed with Parkinson.

With the increase, it creates an urgency for our society to learn more about Parkinson and support persons with Parkinson and their families. Parkinson Society Singapore provides people with Parkinson and their caregivers with support in their daily lives through the programmes and services.

Your donation enables Parkinson Society Singapore to continue to provide programmes and services which better the quality of life for persons with Parkinson.

About the Charity

Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disease affecting 3 out of every 1,000 people aged 50 and above. Singapore's first community-based Parkinson Centre at Bishan provides people with Parkinson and their caregivers with the much needed support beyond those provided in hospitals.

Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) was formed on 16 December 1996 by a group of doctors and caregivers to help people living with Parkinson. The society was registered as a charity on 28 January 2000 and is a member of National Council of Social Service (NCSS).

Since then, the Society has organized a number of programmes including therapeutic exercise programmes, social and recreational activities and annual public forums, aimed at improving the lives of People with Parkinson (PwP).

The Society also works closely with support groups in various hospitals and publishes newsletters and books to raise the awareness of Parkinson. In Singapore, there are more than 8,000 PwP and the number of PwP is expected to go up in our rapidly ageing population.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
