About us

We’re the leading charity for over 60 muscle wasting and weakening conditions. For over 60 years, we’ve been building our community of individuals living with muscle-wasting or weakening conditions, families and carers, scientists, health professionals, supporters, volunteers, and donors. Making advances that would have been unthinkable just ten years ago.
Our Purpose

• We share expert advice and support people to live well now. 

• We fund groundbreaking research to understand the different conditions better and lead us to new treatments. 

• We work with the NHS towards universal access to specialist healthcare. 

• Together, we campaign for people’s rights, better understanding, accessibility, and access to treatments.
