For a Muscle Dream programme place

The Muscle Help Foundation charity is delighted to announce a number of new virtual and in-person Muscle Dream programmes in its 2024/25 activity schedule. New programmes are currently being created, so watch this space. As always, these programmes offer the opportunity for several beneficiaries and their families to connect and come together. Some of our programmes are tailored around three age groups, namely: <8-12yrs>, <13-18yrs> and <19-28yrs>.

For in-person events, we continue to be cautious and vigilant in the delivery of these programmes where common sense COVID-protocols prevail. In protecting you and your families, our volunteers and any suppliers the charity works with, successful nominees will be asked to adhere to any specified charity protocols detailed in all future in-person programme communications.
