Advocacy Ambassadors – practical advice
“A lot of good things have come from the advice I was initially given from the Advocacy Ambassadors. I was able to claim Personal Independence Payments (PIP), which has led on to so many more benefits for me. Not only that though, it’s been great to connect with others living with muscle-wasting conditions. It makes you feel less isolated.” Emily Bonner, who has limb girdle muscular dystrophy
Our Advocacy Ambassadors are all affected – directly or indirectly – by a muscle-wasting condition. They are here to support you with practical advice on independent living, if you’re affected directly or indirectly by a muscle-wasting condition. Speak to someone who really knows what it is like to live with a muscle-wasting condition. And find out how to get the services, benefits or equipment you are entitled to.
