Contact us

We are always glad to hear from you.

Our helpline

If you would like information or support on muscle-wasting conditions, please call our Information and Support Team on our free helpline 0800 652 6352 Monday to Friday 10am to 2pm, or email

We’ve had to reduce the hours now that we’re in another national lockdown, to make sure our team can continue to support callers in a confidential environment. If you call and the team is unable to answer your call, they will pick up voice messages. Leave your name and number and one of our team will get back to you when they can, even if it’s outside of those hours.

Our fundraising hotline

If you would like information or support with fundraising or you’d like to donate, please call our central fundraising hotline: 0300 012 0172 (Mon-Fri, 9am–5pm)

Our research line

If you would like to understand more about the research into your condition or have any research or science-related questions you want answered, please call our research line today on 0207 803 4813 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm)

Questions for specific teams

If you have a particular question, please use the details below to contact the team who can best help you:

Muscular Dystrophy UK’s helpline is a confidential service, we want you to feel safe when you talk to us. We would only need to share what you tell us with someone if:

  • you ask us to get you help because you can’t do this yourself
  •  we believe someone else is at risk of serious harm
  • we are told about acts of terrorism or bomb warnings
  • you are under 18 and we think you are at risk of serious harm
  • you are over 18 and have told us your name and where you are, and we think you or someone else are at risk of serious harm

We always want to give you as much control as possible, and will explain our policy to you and tell you if we feel we might need to contact emergency services to help you access support.

If you contact us by phone we will be able to see your phone number, and might use this if one of the situations listed above comes us. If you prefer to remain completely anonymous you might want to withhold your number before calling.

If you contact us by email we will be able to see your email address and your IP address. Please let us know if you would like your contact details to be stored on our database. By being on our database you will receive up to date news, information and notification of events via email.

The only time we will break confidentiality is if we suspect one of the above – in this instance we may contact one of the emergency services. If you have not provided us with your location but have previously consented to us holding your details we may use these to pass on your details to emergency services to support you.
We may also notify your health professional if you have consented to giving us their details.

Anonymised details of queries, such as age and query topic, are kept to help us develop the service and raise funds to keep it going.
