Pathfinders is always involved in multiple campaigns throughout the year. We used our social media activity to raise awareness of the diverse and varied lives of adults with Duchenne. We invited our members to use the #DMDadultliving hashtag to share their lives with us and change the narrative from tragic depictions of disability to a recognition of the excellent quality of life that is possible with the right care and support.
We are also very involved in other campaigns, working closely with organisations like Transport For All on accessible public transport, the Changing Places Toilet Campaign with Muscular Dystrophy UK, and lots of other local and national campaigns around housing, and access to high-quality care.
Jobs and Volunteering
Pathfinders prioritises recruiting people with muscle-weakening conditions, so if you’re looking for work, keep a close eye on our website, and see if anything comes up. As well as regular employment, there are also often freelance roles available.
We also have a range of voluntary opportunities, from consultancy for organisations to social media and outreach, media ambassadors to authors and researchers.
