We work with the NHS towards universal access to specialist healthcare.
Together, we campaign for people’s rights, better understanding, accessibility, and access to treatments.

Our mission

Our values

Stronger together

We believe in the power of community. That the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Because the more of us who come together, the greater the impact we’ll make. We inspire collaboration across our whole community. Staff and volunteers. Scientists and supporters. Friends and family. Healthcare professionals, other charities, and our corporate partners. We champion Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. Through the way we work and inclusive engagement with the whole community.

Forward thinking

There are over 60 different muscle wasting and weakening conditions. That’s more than 110,000 unique individuals. Plus all the people around us. We’re here for every single one. Whoever you are. Wherever you’re from. You are our sole focus. We set ourselves clear targets and measure our impact. We don’t mince our words. We say what we think.

Here for you

We believe in the power of kindness. We are here for everyone, but we know support isn’t one-size-fits-all. We take the time to listen to every individual, so we can tailor our support to you. We are all about the people who make up our community. The people living with muscle wasting and weakening conditions and those around us. Our friends and family, healthcare professionals and scientists. We share real life stories at every opportunity. Human authenticity. Real words. Real images.

Never Stop

We’ve already made advances that would have been unthinkable just 10 years ago, and we are determined to go even further and faster. We’re here for each other. At every stage of life. We advocate on behalf of our community by amplifying our voices. Raising awareness of the challenges we face and how we’ll overcome them. We have momentum and we’re going places. Every day counts.
