Do you know a worthy volunteer who deserves recognition for their contribution to supporting people living with Parkinson’s? Why not nominate them for a Fight Parkinson's Recognition Award?

The strong supportive nature of the Fight Parkinson's community has been built on the invaluable contributions of volunteers, who offer their time, insight and experience to inspire and support others.

Our annual Recognition Awards recognise years of service and outstanding contributions to the community by individuals and groups. Awards are awarded in the following categories:

Community Recognition Award

These awards recognise the significant contribution of an individual or an organisation to events or activities.

Five, 10 and 15 Year Service Awards

These acknowledge the continuous service of volunteers in an administrative, project or service capacity, particularly those coordinating a Peer Support Group.
