Trusts and Foundations

We are proud and grateful to be supported by a range of trusts, foundations and grant-making organisations.

How your support can change the future

As the UK’s leading muscular dystrophy charity, and we support more than 110,000 people and families with over 60 muscle wasting and weakening conditions. Our partnerships drive campaigning, improve our collective understanding through cutting-edge research, champion accessibility and accelerate new treatments.  

We do not receive guaranteed government income; therefore, all the grants we receive are vital for empowering and providing practical and emotional support for people with muscle wasting or weakening conditions across the UK.  

Whatever the size of your donation, we ensure that every grant is well managed and creates the greatest possible impact on our community.

What we fund

Our grant funding supports essential activities, including:  

  • Helpline and local advisors, who share expert advice and support to live well now. 
  • Groundbreaking research to better understand a range of conditions and lead us to new treatments. 
  • Training for volunteers who provide vital peer support to individuals and their families  
  • Employability training and support to help individuals access work and gain work experience. 
  • Training for health and social care professionals to ensure that everyone has access to specialist healthcare. 
  • Information days, conferences and family activity days, which provide expert advice and opportunities for people with muscle wasting conditions and their families to meet, connect and share their experiences.
