We are a national network of 700 young disabled people and their supporters, and is part of Muscular Dystrophy UK.
We campaign for change, provide guidance, and are experts in what life is like for young disabled people. We are passionately committed to challenging the barriers in society that stop us from living full and independent lives.
I joined because I want to meet new people, especially people my age who also have muscle-wasting conditions; to be at the forefront of protecting the rights of young disabled people; to make policy-makers at local, regional, and national level acknowledge us and invest money into Muscular Dystrophy UK’s research programme; and to create and experience exciting projects for Trailblazers.
