The Working Age Group of the Aylesbury branch of Parkinson’s UK aims to support the needs of its members, living in Aylesbury and the surrounding areas, who are active and working. They hold monthly social meetings in the Queens Park Coffee Bar to meet others over a coffee or a glass of wine and share their experiences and eat cake.
The Aylesbury branch of PUK also hold a weekly voice class at Queens Park on a Thursday evening for everyone in the local community who is affected by Parkinson’s.

We're proud to be working with TerracycleUK to help reduce plastic pollution in our local community. Queens Park is now a collection point for crisp packets, in a scheme supported by Walkers (though any brand of crisps can be included in the scheme!). Bring us your empty packets and Terracycle will make sure they're recycled instead of going to landfill.

The Bucks Stroke Support Service offers practical advice, essential information and emotional support to individuals (and those close to them) who have had a stroke.
As part of their activities, they organise the Aylesbury Stroke Café here at Queens Park on the fourth Thursday of every month, from 2pm to 4pm. Stroke cafés offer long term support to people affected by stroke. It's a great chance to meet others, help build confidence and socialise within a relaxed café setting. Family, friends and carers are all welcome.
For more information visit the group's website or email Kathryn.Coulston@stroke.org.uk.
Space support people who are going through relationship difficulties, depression, bereavement, unemployment, mental health problems, loneliness, or any combination of these issues.
They hold five drop-ins a week, including one at Queens Park on Wednesday from 2:30pm to 4:00pm. Drop-ins are a chance for people to meet others, sit and chat over a hot drink with a biscuit or some fruit in a relaxed atmosphere. All drop-ins are facilitated by volunteers who are trained with listening skills so if anyone needs to talk privately and confidentially, Space have people who are willing to listen.
