The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the leading UK charity fighting muscle-wasting conditions. We are dedicated to beating muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular conditions by finding treatments and cures and to improving the lives of everyone affected by them.
Our work has five main focuses:
We fund world-class research to find effective treatments and cures
We provide practical information, advice and emotional support for individuals with muscle-wasting conditions, their carers and families
We campaign to bring about change and raise awareness of muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular conditions
We award grants towards the cost of specialist equipment, such as powered wheelchairs
We provide specialist education and development for health professionals
We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations and legacies to fund our work.Dedicated volunteers, companies, trusts and foundations help us to raise money to fund our vital work.
