Announcing our Advocacy Ambassadors network

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is thrilled to announce a brand new Advocacy Ambassadors network to enable the charity to support more people and families living with rare muscle-wasting conditions across England.

After overwhelming interest, we have now recruited over 20 Advocacy Ambassadors across England. We will be introducing each of new Advocacy Ambassadors, who are all affected – directly or indirectly – by a neuromuscular condition throughout January.

The project, made possible by a grant from the Big Lottery Fund Reaching Communities programme, has seen the appointment of Advocacy Ambassadors who will form the foundations of a new peer-to-peer network across England.
