NMC provides activities, support and opportunities to build friendships and learn new skills for those with neuromuscular conditions, their Carers and for the whole family.

NMC is proud to offer a varied range of activities that are suitable for all ages and abilities, all with the aim of promoting positive wellbeing.

These activities provide opportunities for our community to enjoy stimulating experiences and achieve new things. They also serve as a break for Carers, with opportunities to enhance life outside of a caring role.

A few activities that the NMC community have enjoyed include:

  • Mindfulness

  • Card Making

  • Accessible Canal Boat Trip

  • Segway

and much more!

We also have many regular groups and activities and hope we have something for everyone to get involved with. If you feel we’re missing something, then we’d love to hear from you! We are always looking to expand the range of activities and clubs on offer.
