About the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign
Leading the fight against muscle disease
The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the leading UK charity focusing on all muscle diseases. It has pioneered the search for treatments and cures for nearly 50 years and is dedicated to improving the lives of all babies, children and adults affected by muscle disease. It relies almost entirely on voluntary donations to support its vital work.
The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign works in four key areas. It:
- provides free practical and emotional support
- funds world-class research to find effective treatments and cures
- campaigns to raise awareness and bring about change
- awards grants towards the cost of specialist equipment, such as wheelchairs
