Current opportunities

There are 110,000 children and adults with muscle-wasting conditions in the UK, and Muscular Dystrophy UK needs you to help raise awareness. As an Ambassador you will be a representative for Muscular Dystrophy UK. You will use your influence and contacts with local small businesses and individuals in your local area to help build Muscular Dystrophy UK networks and fundraising partnerships. You will learn to be confident in speaking about the cause and the work of the charity; developing relationships with key supporters and individuals as part of the process. Raising awareness of who they are and what they do is very important to the charity so they are looking for a proactive volunteer who will seek out speaking opportunities and make asks on behalf of the charity to attend events where further awareness can be raised.

Fundraising groups are the local face of Muscular Dystrophy UK, raising vital funds and constantly raising the profile of the charity so that they can reach more people and their families affected by a muscle wasting condition. They need you to help them; they are asking for your skills and enthusiasm to help grow their fundraising groups!

Muscular Dystrophy UK raises money to fund research to find the causes and cures for muscular dystrophy and to support those who have suffered from any form of muscular dystrophy. They would love you to help them make a difference to those in your local community! Be the local face for MDUK, and get more collection tins out in the community. As a Volunteer Collection box Co-ordinator you will support the Regional Development Manager in your region to raise awareness and funds for the charity by placing and managing collection boxes within businesses in your local area. It can be hugely satisfying to see your collection tin in more of the places you visit, and it doesn’t just help raise money, but people seeing their logo out there are more inclined to look at ways to support the charity.
