As you will see from some of the Muscle Dreams delivered, we work hard to raise the bar in providing an inclusive experience for those with Muscular Dystrophy in the UK that meet our eligibility criteria.
Our Muscle Dream activities are popular across the UK evidenced by the number of nominations received.
Whilst this is good news, the charity has a small but growing wait-list.
Our < 2022 > nominations process remains open for virtual Muscle Dream applications.
The pandemic will determine when face-to-face Muscle Dream interventions will return.
As always, priority is given to potential new beneficiaries who for example have not been the recipient of either a unique (singular) Muscle Dream experience (virtual or otherwise) or participated on one of the charity’s Muscle Dream signature programmes (virtual or otherwise) in the last two years.
Despite being a small charity < 1 full-time paid head > with limited resources, we will continue to do our best but as ever, we desperately need help and support so we can push on with our mission.
The charity will always acknowledge Muscle Dream nominations (virtual or otherwise).
Wherever possible, the charity will always do its best to help when nominations are made.
To receive a Muscle Dream you need to be: Between 8-28 years old Live in the UK Have Muscular Dystrophy (MD) or a variant such as DMD, SMA, CMT, LGMD, etc
There are some things you need to know first: We only deliver Muscle Dreams (virtual or otherwise) in the UK ie. England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland. We do not fund equipment, products, wheelchairs, holidays or short-breaks of any description.
Next steps: Send us your Muscle Dream nomination by completing the online form. Occasionally, we may not be able to fulfil your first request but will discuss other options with you. We will always try to work to find an alternative intervention / experience / moment-in-time.
If you are under 18 years old, you must be put forward by your parent and/or guardian. Priority is given to those who have never received a Muscle Dream in the last 2 years ie. 24 months.
