Who we are
Duchenne UK has one clear aim, to end Duchenne.
As the leading Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) charity in the UK, we want to find effective treatments for DMD and end its devastating impact.
We’re going further than anyone has before, and we’re doing it faster, because this generation of people living with DMD can’t wait. The only way we can achieve this is together: we connect the best researchers with industry, the NHS and families to advance and accelerate every stage of drug development.
What is Duchenne muscular dystrophy?
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive condition diagnosed in childhood. It causes muscles in the body to gradually weaken.
There is currently no cure for DMD, but there is hope. We are at the forefront of advancing treatments and care for everyone affected by the disease.
There are lots of ways you can support us. Make a donation on this page, create your own fundraising page, or visit our website to find out about the latest events and challenges you can take part in.
Together, we will end Duchenne.
