Introduction

Action for M.E. works to end the ignorance, injustice and neglect faced by people with the chronic neurological condition myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.), sometimes diagnosed as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS, or M.E./CFS).

Alongside providing information, support and advice to people to help improve their health and well-being, Action for M.E. works with professionals to enhance the care and support that people with M.E. receive and funds pilot research projects to advance knowledge of the illness.

Our small, dedicated team – we employ 18 part-time and full-time staff and two sessional workers in Scotland – is supported by around 70 volunteers, working with us in our Keynsham and Scotland offices and at home to deliver our vital services.

The majority of our Trustees have had M.E. themselves, and most of the remainder have experienced it as carers.

You can read more about the difference our work makes to people living with M.E. in our 2014-2015 Trustee report and accounts.
