Muscular Dystrophy UK Grant Round Calls

Muscular Dystrophy UK Grant Round 2020


The impact of COVID-19 on our 2020 Grant Round

The pandemic is having an impact across a broad range of activities. Like many charities, we are experiencing a significant fall in income because we have had to cancel and postpone fundraising events for the next few months. We are as committed as ever to making every day count and continuing to provide services for people with muscle-wasting conditions, and are having to make some adjustments to our timeframes and programmes.

Muscular Dystrophy UK regrets to announce that, due to the financial effect COVID-19 is having on our ability to generate income, we are cancelling the current Grant Round in 2020. We have not taken this decision lightly as we look to protect the research we are invested in as far as we possibly can.

We will continue to work alongside the sector in particular with the Association of Medical Research Charities to appeal to UK Research and Innovation and the government for support with funding for medical research charities.

For more information about the impact of COVID-19 on Muscular Dystrophy UK and the steps we are taking, please read this message from MDUK CEO Catherine Woodhead.
