Muscular Dystrophy UK

Support us

Registered Charity 205395. Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity for the 70,000 children and adults living with muscle-wasting conditions in the UK. We provide help for today, hope for tomorrow.

Muscle-wasting conditions cause muscles to weaken and waste over time, leading to increasingly severe disability. Some conditions affect the heart muscle and vital breathing muscles too, cutting lives short.

Since 1959, MDUK has been supporting families living with muscle-wasting conditions. We provide vital information, advice, resources and support for people with these conditions, their families and the professionals who work with them. We fund research to find treatments and cures, and help people live well with their condition.
