Muscle Dreams

The Muscle Help Foundation’s specialised team deliver transformational, once in a lifetime experiences for children and young people with Muscular Dystrophy and allied neuromuscular conditions.

Muscle Dreams nomination wait-list update

  • 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, we have been overwhelmed and as a result, the wait-list we established some years ago, despite best efforts, continues to grow.
  • Whilst our 2019 process remains open for applications, the charity cannot make any guarantees in this financial year ie. 2019/20 as to when we might be able to fulfil any new Muscle Dream nominations.
  • 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 family charity with extremely limited resources, we are doing our best to reduce this wait-list but as ever, we need your continued help and support. That said, we will always acknowledge Muscle Dream nominations and do our 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”

Dr. Rachel Furley BA MB BChir MA MRCPCH
