We have one clear aim. To end Duchenne.

We are the UK's leading Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) charity. We're connecting scientists, industry, the NHS and families to accelerate research and bring the best care and treatments to everyone affected by DMD.

Further. Faster. Together

We need to go further than anyone has before to find effective treatments. This means setting our ambitions high and overcoming every barrier in our way.

We’re going to do it faster, because this generation of people living with DMD can’t wait.

The only way we can achieve this is together. We create a network of mutual support for families. We collaborate with scientists and the pharmaceutical industry, bringing them together to share knowledge. And we work with health services so that patients get the care they need.
