- writing to ministers and MPs
- or seeing your idea turned in to a fundraising event.
The opportunities seem endless and with the guiding hand of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign's experienced and talented professionals you have the chance to learn new skills, build relationships and bulk up your CV.
‘Young disabled people like me sometimes struggle to not only get a job but also get work experience. Since I joined Trailblazers and came in to the MDC office I've worked with the events fundraising team on my own ideas, developed my IT skills on databases and word processing, recruited and advised other Trailblazers, as well as helping to develop the Trailblazers website and other publications.'
Stephen Liney, Trailblazers South East Ambassador
'I've been coming in twice a week for the last month on days when I don't have lectures at university. The staff here are very friendly and welcoming. Even though we're serious about what we do, that doesn't mean we can't have good fun doing it.'
James Lee, Trailblazers London Ambassador
