We provide information and support to 250,000 adults and children in the UK who have ME, which is also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. We also fund research to end the scourge of this iilness.
The ME Association wants the UK to be a better place for people with ME/CFS – somewhere where the physical nature of the illness is taken seriously and sufferers get the respect they deserve.
We bring campaigning, information and support to the mix to make this happen and run ME Connect, the UK's premier ME/CFS helpline.
ME Association aims to:
- We aim to help people of all ages with ME/CFS find the support and choices they need in order to regain their health.
- We educate opinion-formers and society at large about what needs to be done to help people with ME/CFS regain their health with the aim of making them fully-functioning members of society once again.
- We promote and fund research into the physical nature of ME/CFS with the aim of finding the causes of the illness and – one day soon – a cure.
