Help available

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign provides practical help for individuals and families with neuromuscular disorders through its network of Family Care Officers, its hospital-based muscle centres, its expert advice on equipment and adaptations, and its information service. The charity can also provide grants towards essential equipment like outdoor electric wheelchairs and special beds.A branch network offers local help and support.

The charity is a leading funder of research into causes and possible treatments and cures. It ensures that teams of scientists in the UK and overseas can concentrate on finding ways of easing, reversing or preventing the conditions. There is still some way to go, but progress in diagnosis, and the existence of genetic counselling, has been made possible by a commitment to research since 1959.The charity has a network of volunteers across the country, who offer support and who raise funds to pay for the work. The Campaign relies almost entirely on voluntary donations.
