Muscle Owl: Initial funding for an inclusive disabled community (360G-phf-31111)

Peter Duffy founded Muscle Owl, an online media and campaigns channel dedicated to changing attitudes towards disability, in 2014. He has a unique insight into this issue: his brother, Andrew, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and he has worked for Muscular Dystrophy UK, which has given him experience and contacts in the sector. Although Muscle Owl has already produced over 50 podcast episodes, it has never received any funding. Peter and his co-editor Michaela would like to develop and raise awareness of the organisation, allowing it to reach more people and offer more diverse and informative material.
