Lay Grant Reviewer
Anyone affected by Parkinson's – including those who help support or care for a partner, friend or family member with Parkinson's can be a Lay Grant Reviewer, no matter what their background or experience.
As a lay grant reviewer you will have an opportunity to influence research projects by feeding in the perspective of people affected by Parkinson’s
Anne, lay grant reviewer says:
“"Becoming a lay grant reviewer was a way for me to use the knowledge I gained as I cared for Mum. It has also been helpful in my grief journey and enables me to give back to the charity that has supported me.”
“"Now, having done quite a few, I realise it’s my first-hand knowledge of the condition that is important to share with researchers, who have the scientific knowledge but not the lived experience of how Parkinson's affects those who live with or alongside the condition."
