Here are just a few examples of projects supported recently:
The City Bridge Trust is funding Muscular Dystrophy UK’s highly successful work experience programme, Moving Up, which has provided work experience opportunities for many young disabled people in London. This is part of their broader ‘Bridge to Work’ programme, through which they are supporting a group of charities to provide work experience opportunities for disabled Londoners. They also supported the development of the Trailblazers recent report on young disabled people and employment: Ready and Able.
The Cranbury Foundation has been a long standing supporter of the charity’s work on myotonic dystrophy. The Foundation is a much valued partner and continues to make a vital contribution to our work in this area.
After a successful pilot in 2018, the Bupa UK Foundation have provided funding for a series of wellbeing camps for young people aged 18-30 living with a muscle-wasting condition. The camps in the Lake District, Exmoor and Kielder aim to build self-confidence and resilience through workshops and outdoor activities.
