Family and Friends Funds

It's a race against time to give those with DMD a different future, but by working together we are hopeful we can do just that.

About Friends and Family Funds

We know that the people who are most passionate about raising money to find effective treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) are those who live with it every day. That’s why we want to help and support you – the friends and families of those living with DMD.

Our Family and Friends Funds are a great opportunity to create your own ‘charity within a charity’ as part of Duchenne UK. You get all the benefits of having your own fundraising identity and control over how the funds are spent, without the legal, financial and other burdens of running a registered charity. You know better than anyone the story that you want to tell your supporters. And when it comes to spending the money you raise, you decide which projects you want to support.

Every pound you raise will be invested into vital Duchenne UK funded projects, programmes and research.
