South London Younger Parkinson’s Network (SLYPN) is a support network for younger people, who are working age and live with Parkinson’s in South London. We are heavily involved with fundraising and have raised over £200,000 so far. We also make sure every penny raised goes towards research for a Parkinson’s cure.

1 in 20 people diagnosed with Parkinson’s is under 40, the SLYPN is affiliated to Parkinson’s UK and provides a valuable support network to people diagnosed with Parkinson’s at a young age.  Founders, Helen Stoinanov, Kate Wellington & Sarah Webb created it in 2011 to support the South London demographic who could not meet during the day, but wanted to find out more about symptoms, medication, treatments and to find general support.

South London Young Parkinson’s Network members are invited to regular coffee meet-ups, drinks and activities, plus our fundraising events – see the Our Community and Fundraising Events pages for more details.
