Charity information

Sheffield M.E. Group

Sheffield ME Group is a Self-Help Group which encourages and helps support those with ME/CFS (and their families and carers) to use their own resources so that they are better able to manage the illness and the changes that it has made to their lives. We do this by providing a range of services tailored to meet a variety of needs and circumstances and through mutual support and exchange of information.
We also seek to raise awareness of ME/CFS and educate the general public through the promotion and dissemination of knowledge about the illness:
ME is Myalgic Encephalomyelitis which is the name most frequently used by the general public
CFS is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and tends to be the expression preferred by doctors nowadays.
PVFS is Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome and is often used in cases where there was a viral illness at the beginning and during the first six months after that.

Sheffield M. E. Group operates with respect to each individual person and we aim to give each one an opportunity to have their say and to become more involved in the Group, whilst working within our adopted policies and guidelines.

Our core values are based on our charitable objectives as stated in our Constitution.
