Action for M.E.

"Action for M.E. tackles ignorance, injustice and neglect for people whose lives are stolen by M.E"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Imagine having months off from work because you are so ill, so pole-axed by fatigue and pain, that you are no longer able to tell the time when you look at the face of a clock. Imagine you can no longer read even the shortest paragraph because your power of concentration is reduced to zero.

That is the experience of many thousands of people with the chronic neurological condition myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.), sometimes diagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS, or M.E./CFS), which affects around 250,000 people in the UK, and 17 million worldwide. 

Action for M.E. takes action to end the ignorance, injustice and neglect faced by people with M.E. We do this by meeting need now to improve the lives of people with M.E.  while taking action to secure change for the future.
