This is the homepage for the Colchester branch of Muscular Dystrophy UK. We provide support for people with neuromuscular conditions living in east Essex and parts of Suffolk and raise money for the research of these diseases. We provide fact sheets and booklets about these conditions free of charge. Our welfare officer listens and gives advice on problems arising due to sufferers' conditions.
For newcomers: if you want to find out more about the disease, you probably want to start off by looking at some of the links, or our brief introduction. Alternatively, to get a taste of what our branch is like, take a glance at some of our newsletters or at the events we have organised. For those who want to get involved or just have a few questions, don't be shy to contact us.
Remember that this is your website and so if you want anything here (more information/links/news/etc.) or don't like something, contact me.
