Support us

To find effective treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy we need to go further than anyone ever has. We’re going to do it faster too, because this generation of boys can’t wait. We need your help, because the only way we can do this is together!

Join us, and be part of the end of Duchenne.

Our story

Duchenne UK was founded by parents and we are fighting every day to find treatments for our children and everyone living with DMD. We do this with the relentless determination of a mother and the rigorous focus of a scientist.

We are funding research, accelerating treatments, and supporting families along the way. At the heart of it all are our boys, men and rare girls living with DMD.

Donate now and bring forward the day when we will end Duchenne.
