About us

Muscular Dystrophy UK (previously known as the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign) is the charity bringing individuals, families and professionals together to beat muscle-wasting conditions.

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 70,000 children and adults in the UK.

  • 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.
