Moving Up Programme – Supported Work Experience

This programme, run by Muscular Dystrophy UK, is open to Londoners aged 16 – 30 with any disability.

Participants will first do a placement in the Muscular Dystrophy offices in Southwark with a department they have an interest in. These internal placements can run from 1 week to 6 months depending on the individual. Following this, participants may go on to an external placement with one of Muscular Dystrophy’s partners which include 20Ten advertising and the Home Office.

Travel expenses and lunch up to £5 a day are covered as well as the cost of any equipment that is required to make participants fully comfortable and able to achieve their potential. It is truly a very supported work experience.
