Every donation we recieve no matter how big or small goes towards finding treatments, cures and improving the lives of everyone affected by muscular dystrophy and other related conditions. Please see a few examples of what your money can do:

£35 funds an hour of research that could lead us to an effective treatment or cure to improve and lengthen people’s lives.

£50 gives parents one hour with a specialist physiotherapist who can show them the valuable muscle-stretching techniques that could keep their child walking for longer.

£148 funds our Freephone Information Line for one day so staff can provide vital support to families and healthcare professionals on a wide range of conditions and issues.

£500 allows our nationwide network of young people with muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular conditions – the Trailblazers – to get together in their local area, to discuss   how best to get jobs, socialise and live independently.

£900 allows the charity to make a grant towards the cost of a child’s powered wheelchair.

£2,000 covers the running costs of a Muscle and Nerve Centre for a week, providing diagnosis and multi-disciplinary care.

£30,000 funds a PhD studentship for one year.

£100,000 supports a research student through their PhD, encouraging the brightest young scientists to stay in the field of neuromuscular research.
