Muscular Dystrophy UK
Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity for 70,000 children and adults living with muscle-wasting conditions.
We’re making a difference today, providing vital information and support to help people live as independently as possible.
We’re making a difference for tomorrow, accelerating progress in research and driving the campaign for access to emerging treatments.
The charity funds world-class research to find effective treatments and cures, and provides practical information, advice and emotional support for individuals affected by these conditions, as well as their families and carers. We campaign to bring about change and raise awareness, award grants towards the cost of specialist equipment such as powered wheelchairs and we provide specialist education and development for health professionals.
We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations and legacies to fund our vital work.
