Duchenne UK marked Carers Week (8th-14th of June) by publishing blog written by parents in the DMD community.
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.
We would like to highlight and thank all the carers in the DMD Community.

Here are some useful resources:
We are pleased to share blogs written by parents to demonstrate the current challenges and how they are dealing with them.
