Muscle Help Foundation Request

Organisation Description

Muscle Help Foundation is the charity tackling the isolating and all-consuming nature of the muscle wasting disease Muscular Dystrophy (MD). Our vision is a world of hope, purpose, inspiration, and empowerment for children with MD and their families.
MHF organises and facilitates highly personalised interventions, called Muscle Dreams, for children and young people (8–28yrs). We deliver powerful physiological and psychological benefits that improve emotional and mental wellness. Designed to be restorative and uplifting, beneficiaries are empowered via the realisation of their Muscle Dream – from learning a new skill, experiencing level flight or being a part of one of MHF’s bespoke programmes, these moments-in-time not only boost confidence but reduce isolation, enhancing social connection. In the words of one beneficiary, they ‘catapult them back into a life of possibility’.

What are they looking for?

1) The charity is looking for a Chair of Trustees who is passionate about our cause but also keen to get involved and help lead and drive the charity’s strategic direction. The Chair will work closely with the trustees and the charity’s founder and CEO. See

2) We have a specific project (virtual) around assessing, identifying and embedding a new online fundraising partner - I'm hopeful that this is something that someone may be able to help us with.
