These are the charity’s key fulfillment device, in other words, our core purpose. Muscle Dreams are transformational in nature. Since the charity’s inception, we have witnessed the power of shared experiences and how transformational they can be for beneficiaries, families and communities.
Muscle Dreams nomination wait-list update (as of 1st March 2020)
Our Muscle Dream activities have proven to be very popular across the UK evidenced by the number of nominations the charity receives.
Whilst this is good news, the charity has been overwhelmed and as a result, the wait-list the charity established some years ago, despite best efforts, continues to grow month-on-month.
At this time, the charity cannot make any guarantees in this financial year < 2020/2021 > as to when we might be able to fulfil any new nominations received in this period.
This position will be reviewed by the charity’s Trustee Board over the next 12 month period.
In practice, this will mean that priority will always be given to potential new beneficiaries who for example have not been the recipient of either a unique (singular) Muscle Dream experience or participated on one of our Muscle Dream signature programmes in the last two years.
Despite being a very small charity < only 1 full-time paid member of staff > with limited resources, we will continue to do our best to reduce this wait-list but as ever, we need a lot more help, support and more resources, which we define as < money, skills & time >.
We will always acknowledge Muscle Dream nominations and do our very best to help.
Thank you for your understanding at this time.
The magic in the Muscle Dream formula is that they are always tailored. This highly personalised approach distinguishes MHF from other wish fulfilment and/or experiential charities in the UK.
Today, the charity’s growing impact is being felt by beneficiaries and their families across the country; from improved confidence, greater self-esteem, and an increased sense of hopefulness to a powerful shared identity that connects families, giving a platform to share knowledge, memories and establish lasting friendships.
“As a paediatrician working within the NHS and with an interest in neuromuscular disability, I come into contact with many people who have various types of muscular dystrophy. Due to the expertise and understanding of those working within The Muscle Help Foundation, I would recommend them beyond any other organisation in delivering amazing experiences to those with muscular dystrophy. They are able to understand both the individual and their families with their needs, which are often complex. They enable an amazing, safe and empowering experience for all involved”
