Barbara has been a Trustee since October 2012. She works as a Director of Parkinson’s UK, and is responsible for the charity’s information and support services, support groups, volunteers and staff across the UK. She is also a self-confessed, compulsive volunteer herself! Her own volunteering has included: pregnancy counselling, DJ-ing for hospital radio, mini-bus driving and supporting Kurdish refugees in Hackney. Barbara lives with her husband John and three very pampered cats.
