The Northern Ireland Muscle Group is a great opportunity to meet people and their families in the region affected by muscular dystrophy or a related neuromuscular condition, as well as share information and advice through peer to peer support.

Muscle Groups are also a way to get involved with Muscular Dystrophy UK’s campaigning work in Northern Ireland.

Michaela Hollywood, a member of the Northern Ireland Muscle Group, commented:

Living with a muscle-wasting condition can be extremely isolating, making it difficult to meet others in a similar situation. Muscle Groups make a real difference as they are a great way to bring
people together as well as sharing information and advice.
