Peer support

Contact information

Our peer support volunteers understand what you are going through, no matter how rare the condition. Our peer support volunteers all have a personal experience of living with a muscle-wasting condition. They are passionate about providing much needed support to people when a diagnosis is given.

We can introduce you to one of them so that you can contact them confidentially to talk about how you are feeling and speak to them on the phone.

All our peer support volunteers have been provided with training and support from members of the care and information team at Muscular Dystrophy UK and the Samaritans.
