M.E. is a serious, neurological condition that affects the lives of at least 250,000 adults and children in the UK – more than MS and Parkinson’s combined. It may also be diagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS or M.E./CFS).
Most people afected by M.E. face considerable challenges in accessing appropriate care and support, not just from health professionals but also from at school, at work and in the community.
Action for M.E. is here to help, often when no-one else is.
We offer an information and support service for people with M.E. of all ages, including carers and family members, and enable peer-support to reduce isolation. We engage with policy-makers at local, national and international level to address the changes so urgently needed, and work collaboratively to invest in and campaign for accelerated biomedical research.
