  • Mission statement

    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.

    • We aim to help people of all ages with ME/CFS find the support and choices they need in order to regain their health.
