Types of membership

About membership

Parkinson's Europe members are Parkinson’s organisations and affiliate organisations which are based in Europe (or in countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea), and are legally constituted according to the laws and practices of their countries of origin.

Parkinson's Europe is a patient organisation that is inclusive and benefits from the wealth of expertise and experience supplied by its membership. We have therefore three types of membership:

Membership (Parkinson’s) organisations

Not for profit organisations based in any European country that represent a membership of people with Parkinson’s and carers.


Not for profit organisations based in any European country who have a special interest in Parkinson’s, with no individual members.

Both these membership categories will have voting rights and will need to pay a membership fee to join.


Parkinson's organisations outside of Europe and individuals, including people with Parkinson’s, carers, healthcare professionals and other people with a particular interest in Parkinson’s. 

There is no membership fee and Friends do not have voting rights.

This category is so that we can keep our Friends updated on news, events and opportunities to get involved in activities that will help the Parkinson’s community.

Membership (Parkinson’s) organisations

The membership fees structure below is based on the number of members each organisation has in order to ensure transparency and fairness, and was ratified at Parkinson's Europe Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 29 June 2021.

Members numbers Membership fee
Less than 250 €217
251-500 €380
501-1,000 €653
1,001-2,000 €707
2,001-4,000 €1,360

The membership fee for all affiliates is €217 per organisation.

Membership fee bandings (2023)

Membership fees will be reviewed on an annual basis as per the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP), which is compiled by Eurostat. These figures have been reviewed for 2023 and there is an increase of 10%. However, as a gesture of goodwill, we have only made a 5% increase in the 2023 membership fees.


There is no charge to join Parkinson's Europe as a Friend.
