Living with MDThe Muscular Dystrophy Campaign Information Service provides free expert information to anyone affected by muscle disease, we have produced over 100 free publications ranging from expert factsheets about medical conditions to practical advice on equipment as well as comprehensive guides on adapting your home. For many, this information is instrumental in helping people feeling more confident in managing their condition.

A lady who recently received a copy of our Adaptations Manual commented:

 Thank you very much for all the information you provided. I feel much more at ease tackling this housing adaptation. It is a great resource!

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign recently ran a survey showing the impact our information has people accessing the service, with very positive results.
