Duchenne UK's main focus will always be to fund and accelerate treatments and a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Duchenne UK also recognises the importance of community care and support, we understand the daily struggles families face.
Duchenne UK therefore collaborates with various charities and patient organisations to ensure that we can provide help to families within the Duchenne community.
We collaborate with other charities in the UK and globally, to advance DMD research. Our co-founder, Alex Johnson, sits on the board of UPPMD, United Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, the global umbrella group for DMD patient organisations.
Duchenne UK co-funds a number of clinical posts here in the UK with other DMD patient organisations and the Great Ormond Street Charity. Find out more here.
