• We share expert advice and support the 110,000 people in the UK living with muscle-wasting and weakening conditions to live well now. • We fund groundbreaking research to understand the different conditions better and lead us to new treatments. • We work with the NHS towards universal access to specialist healthcare. • Together, we campaign for people’s rights, better understanding, accessibility, and access to treatments.
ABOUT US: 

We’re the leading charity for over 60 muscle wasting and weakening conditions. For over 60 years, we’ve been building our community of individuals living with muscle-wasting or weakening conditions, families and carers, scientists, health professionals, supporters, volunteers, and donors. Making advances that would have been unthinkable just ten years ago.

WHY OUR WORK MATTERS: 

We connect our community of more than 110,000 people, and all the people around them. So they can get the healthcare, support and treatments they need to feel good, mentally and physically. Through advice and support, research, campaigning, and fundraising.

OUR VALUES:

WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN OUR PEOPLE: 

For some roles, we may be looking for specific skills and experience, but for all of our volunteering roles, we're looking for enthusiastic, friendly people who are happy to work with our staff and volunteers to make a difference in the lives of people living with muscle-wasting conditions.

 

And we want to make sure you have a great experience volunteering with us so we always want to know what you're looking to gain from volunteering too!

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT: 

We're the leading charity for muscle-wasting and weakening conditions, and have funded more than £55m in research.We’ve already made advances that would have been unthinkable just 10 years ago, and we are determined to go even further and faster. We’re here for each other. At every stage of life. We advocate on behalf of our community by amplifying our voices. Raising awareness of the challenges we face and how we’ll overcome them. We have momentum and we’re going places. Every day counts. 
 

There are over 60 different muscle wasting and weakening conditions. That’s more than 110,000 unique individuals. Plus all the people around them. We’re here for every single one. We set ourselves clear targets and measure our impact. We don’t mince our words. We say what we think.
