We run monthly meetings at the Melville Library. Most months we have a specialist guest speaker, and then a catch-up/chat time afterwards. They are on the first Thursday of every month.
There is also a growing list of social coffee mornings in Perth, the suburbs, and the country. They are held monthly in Albany, Baldivis, Bicton, Bunbury, Geraldton, Gosnells, Mandurah, Margaret River, Mindarie, Morley, Mullaloo, Rockingham, South Perth and Wanneroo. We also have a weekend coffee morning, in Kings Park.
MDWA is passionate about improving the quality of life for people living with neuromuscular conditions. We work with hundreds of families, helping them get the best support and services they need.

About Muscular Dystrophy
Muscular dystrophy belongs to a group of genetic neuromuscular conditions where muscles slowly degenerate and weaken. Where muscle would normally rebuild and continue to grow, in neuromuscular conditions once the muscles are damaged they have limited ability to repair. Neuromuscular conditions affect more than 20,000 Australians and we support around 800 families in WA.
