About

What we do & how we help

We are a small organisation making a big impact.

We work with hundreds of families, helping them get the best support and services they need and connecting them to others with similar conditions, enabling them to lead full lives.

We are passionate about improving the quality of life for people living with neuromuscular conditions, whom we call our community.

Awareness, attention and funding for Muscular Dystrophy WA is held back by the underlying perception that organisations trying to ‘cure’ disease are more worthy than those addressing the everyday needs of people living with these conditions.

We are here to change that perception and to make sure we provide our community with Support for Life.

We are proud to exhibit the Registered Charity Tick, which you can see here. This was developed by the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission as a way for registered charities to be recognised for their commitment to being transparent, accountable and well-run.
