Muscular Dystrophy UK
We are the UK charity for individuals and families living with muscle-wasting conditions. We support research to drive the development of effective treatments and cures. We ensure access to specialist NHS care and support. We provide services and promote opportunities to enable individuals and their families to live as independently as possible. We know we can beat muscle-wasting conditions more quickly if we work together. We are uniting skills, knowledge and resources in the UK and working with others around the world so we can improve the quality of life for the people affected, and to bring cures closer to reality.
ABOUT US: 

Founded in 1959, we have been leading the fight against muscle-wasting conditions since then.
 

We bring together more than 60 rare and very rare progressive muscle-weakening and wasting conditions, affecting around 110,000 children and adults in the UK.

 

Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity bringing individuals, families and professionals together to beat muscle-wasting conditions.

    WHY OUR WORK MATTERS: 
    • We support high-quality research to find effective treatments and cures and won’t stop until we have found them for all muscle-wasting conditions
    • We are leading the drive to get faster access to emerging treatment for families in the UK
    • We ensure everyone has the specialist NHS care and support they need – the right help at the right time, wherever they live.
    • We provide a range of services and resources to help people live as independently as possible.
