As you will see from some of the Muscle Dreams delivered over many years, the charity works 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 interventions are extremely popular as evidenced by the number of nominations received.
Whilst this is good news, the charity has a small but growing wait-list.
Our < 2023/24 > nominations process is now open for both virtual and in-person Muscle Dream applications.
In terms of Covid-19, we remain cautious and are applying sensible operational protocols to protect everyone.
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 extremely limited resources, we will continue to do our best but as ever, we desperately need help, support and donations so we can push on with our #powerof657 mission.
To receive a Muscle Dream you need to be: Between 8-28 years old Live in the UK Have a variant of Muscular Dystrophy (MD) such as DMD, SMA, BMD, CMT, LGMD, etc
There are some things you need to know first: We only deliver Muscle Dreams (virtual or in-person) in the UK ie. England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland. We do not fund equipment, products, wheelchairs, gaming systems, mobility equipment or holidays 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.
