What we do
The NMC provides a range of unique services and specialist advice with the sole aim of improving the quality of life for adults with Muscular Dystrophy and other neuromuscular conditions.The charity was founded in 1990. There's no other centre like the NeuroMuscular Centre (NMC) in the UK or Europe!
"We are all about enabling people to have options to have more fulfilling and productive lives."
At the heart of the NMC is a vibrant and commercially successful Social Enterprise. NeuroMuscular Centre (NMC) Design+Print employs 15 people, 12 of whom have Muscular Dystrophy. The team aim to generate a surplus to re-invest in the work of NeuroMuscular Centre (NMC) helping others with the condition.
The NeuroMuscular Centre (NMC) physiotherapy service provides ongoing treatment for adults and young people with Muscular Dystrophy where the NHS does not. Physio is crucial in maintaining muscle strength and tone for longer and helping in pain management. Physio is the key to maintaining better quality of life for our 360 registered patients.
The Centre is largely run by people with Muscular Dystrophy, so it is very well tuned into to what people with neuromuscular conditions want.
The Centre is fully accessible and has Care and Support staff to provide essential help, enabling people to train or work as independently as possible.
The Centre has a fleet of accessible minibuses which provide transport for our Students and Employees on a daily basis.
The Centre has an infectiously warm, welcoming and positive culture. The emphasis is on what you can do and not on what you can't do. Our popular training courses support this ethos - working to provide opportunities and options for people with Muscular Dystrophy who sometimes find it hard to see a positive future.
The NeuroMuscular Centre (NMC) mainly serves people in the North of England and North Wales. NeuroMuscular Centre (NMC)'s expert team are increasingly advising professionals and people helping those Muscular Dystrophy across the UK, drawing on their vast accumulated knowledge and expertise
