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:
Accessible Canal Boat Trip
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.
3D Printing Club
Our 3D Printing Club meets via Zoom every Tuesday.
They have experimented making desktop logos, straw holders for drinks and phone holders as well as a 'Mood Tree' and 3D printed landscapes and mazes.
New members welcome.
Exercise at Home
Every Wednesday at 11:30am we have a live exercise class on zoom with our therapies team.
They have also produced a series of YouTube videos, with a range of exercises, stretches and adapted pilates videos for you to follow at home.
Our NMC Community came together virtually to enjoy poetry throughout the past year.
This has developed into monthly poetry get-togethers via Zoom where we can then share and enjoy our work together.

New members are always welcome.
